I have had Eczema on my feet year now, after many

Customer Question

Hi, I have had Eczema on my feet for a year now, after many trips to the doctors for different lotions and potions and trips to chiropodist and private dermatologist I have been for allergy patch testing. I tested positive for Hydroxyethyl Acrylate which I believe is a chemical used in our new laminate flooring which has been down for a year!
This condition has caused me distress,pain, time and money. Do you think it is possible to raise a case against the Laminate company who actually advertise their product as 'the ideal flooring for allergy sufferers' on their website.
Please advise, thanks
