  • After moving to a new house share in a big, old house, I have experienced an increasing severity in my dyshidrotic eczema while also developing ringworm, jock itch, and anguar cheilitis in separate episodes. This makes me think there is a correlation and I could be experiencing an allergy to something unknonwn.
