For the past few days my left wrist has been very itchy. I have a bad nickel allergy so no jewelry. I tried lotion, Olux, and Cortizone (hydrocortisone) and no relief.

In brief: What is your exposur

This brings up the question of what you may be exposed to now that you are not aware of.
The nickel allergy reaction is contact dermatitis and this suggests you may have another sensitizer. You might do an inventory - watch, new detergent, etc. This is not generalized but localized to something near the left wrist. Is the wrist itchy on the top or bottom? Maybe your dog has somet

In brief: Changes in habit?

Have you changed any habits or laundry? If so, perhaps that is the culprit but if that was the case you would likely have it all over your body not localized to your wrist.
Have a doctor examine it in person.
