Dr. Leslie A Stewart was the 3rd dermatologist that I saw for my contact dermatitis which was mostly on my hands, but was starting to crop up on my arms, legs and torso. The itching was sever, and the skin was getting very red, peeling and starting to swell on my hands. The other two Drs. gave me steroid ointments that helped, but that didn’t get to the root cause.
Dr. Stewart did skin allergy tests, and found that I had sensitivity to latex, nickel and blue dye. She had me get rid of blue in my clothing, even my blue jeans that I lived in. She suggested that I get a nickel test kit and we began to hunt for metals that I came into contact with on a frequent basis like cell phone, refrigerator handle, scissors etc. Since I had worked in hospitals for 46 years, I had already become aware of the latex allergy.
Dr. Stewart was like a determined detective. She gave clear instructions in how the use of the medication; and suggestions regarding protecting my very sensitive skin, such as using cotton gloves under my gardening gloves and during house-cleaning chores.
My hands are no longer red and itchy, and I now have some useful knowledge to keep on top of my skin allergies.
