I've suffered with eczema for years - it gets so bad that I have to get steriod cream/gel to help control it. I finally cleared up a few years ago when I got sick and spent 6 months on steriods - thought I was done with eczema for good. Recently I broke out on my wrist - the only thing that I've changed is that I'm wearing a watch - haven't done that in years - I'm wondering if I'm allergic to nickel - never thought about it till I just saw your post. I don't use nickel knitting needles, just bamboo and birch so my fingers and hands are fine.
- you may have helped me clear up/find a solution to my eczema problem. I'm not going to wear my watch for awhile and see what happens. If it clears up - no more watches.
