Allergic rash from detergent

Common Questions and Answers about Allergic rash from detergent

rash

I have recently discovered I am pretty severely allergic to Cheer detergent. I am fine with Sunlight and Tide (the only other detergents I have used), but Cheer doesn't agree with me. Lucky me, the most severe reaction took place at the lady bits. This included a red, irritated rash, pain, and disgusting clear discharge, like this was no ovulation. Silly me, decided to google my symptoms and the results sent my diseasephobe self into a near panic attack.
My first kept getting a rash when she was first born and a friend recommended that I try baby laundry detergent. So, I bought some skeptical that it would help but it did. Her rash cleared up within a day or two. I continued to use the dreft-like product until she was about 6 months old. After that, her skin sensitivity had improved to the point that I no longer had to wash her clothes special.
Hello, From the symptoms it looks like contact dermatitis or allergic reaction. You may try calamine lotion on the rash. You should also maintain hygiene and try to keep the area clean and dry, wear loose-fitting cotton clothing. Also use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid deodorant / cosmetics. You can also take some over the counter antihistaminic like Benadryl or Claritin. They will help in controlling itching. If the symptoms persist then please consult a dermatologist.
This could be foot and mouth disease and yes humans do get it , what does the rash look like is it flat or raised, it may also be from an allergy, so he is off color but no fever , think of anything new he has been playing with or worn , as its winter is he wearing new wool socks and gloves or other material may irritate , have you changed Laundry detergent?
You can also use a barrier cream with zinc oxide paste or calamine lotion or a mild steroid cream like dermacort on the rash. If the rash is itchy,you can take some antihistaminic like benadryl or Claritin. If the rash persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep us posted if you have any additional queries. Kind regards.
I can't use ANY lotions...even aloe vera. Most shampoos and conditioners leave me with a rash as well. Some of us have super sensitive skin. Sounds like something is giving you hives...perhaps check the bottles and see what ( if any ) common ingredient they have. Try something else to moisturize...like oatmeal. Unless you have an allergy to it, it should help. There are plenty of soaps that contain oatmeal...aveeno is one of them. Or just pour a cup of oatmeal in your bath water.
Hi, This could be eczema, allergic rash, folliculitis. You need to wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. Apply calamine lotion at the site of the lesions and see if it helps. You could take some oral antihistamine medications like cetrizine or loratadine. You need to maintain a good personal hygiene . Wear lose comfortable clothes. Wash all your linen and towels etc with a disinfectant solution.
The best way to describe it is like a heat rash because it's prickly like that! Can't catch a break I tell ya! No idea what it's from. I've had allergy testing in the past and am not allergic to common allergens. I haven't used anything different soap wise, detergent or shampoo. What the heck?? Anyone know if Benadryl is safe to take? I think I'm gonna dab myself in calamine lotion before work later!! :( This girl is giving me a real taste of a bad pregnancy I tell ya!!
10) ago, got a rash on the trunk of his body and thought it was detergent or something that could be fixed. Now, several months later his rash did not go away and now I have a rash on the trunk of my body. If I didn't know better I would think it is measles, but I know that isn't the case. I am half-way intelligent and know that it isn't the normal, first things you would ask like detergent, fabric softener...what I don't understand is that he had it and now I do.
could the rash be an std? ARS rash? I had no symptoms other then the rash, i feel and felt fine, just the rash, could ARS present itself with only a rash? Or other std? The rash went away after a week or so, faded quick after the 7th day. I couldnt get to a Doctor beacuase i just changed jobs and my insurance doesnt kick in for a month or so. I felt no need to rush into a doctor since i feel fine. Should i worry about this?
Hi, This isnt likely to be due to armour since you say you were already taking it for one year before the rash. But you could still see if the rash goes and comes with stopping and restarting the drug. Do let us know what your dermatologist says. Regards.
I have bought and exchanged 8 bras from Victoria's Secret, and only one, that is the simplest and uses a different fabric and has no support cups, doesn't give me a rash. I just bought 4 more bras from 2 from Wonder Bra and 2 from another maker, and it looks like the Wonder Bra (Made in China) is giving me a rash as well. It is very similar in make to the Victoria's Secret bras that have been causing my itchy, red, triangle (clearly around my breasts were the seems sit) shaped rash.
Tide free is what I use now and aside from a rash just from the change, I haven't had any issues with it. I also found out some of my clothes are white!! I assume most of the dye and perfume free ones would be ok. If all else fails you can try plain old borax. 20 mule team(?) is a good one.
I recently went to the doctor to find out that I had mono and strep throat. The doctor had given me amoxicillin which is the reason I had to change doctors. Not only did the amoxicillin make my throat close up to the point where I could barely breath, I broke out in "the rash from hell" from head to toe. I am currently on steroids and benadryl but both seem to not be doing anything because my rash gets worse every day.
I also got a rash from a WACOAL bra. I wore it one day. The rash didn't appear until after I took it off, and took overnight to really develop. The rash is the same shape of the bra cups, so I knew it was the cause. I am using anti-inch cream which is helping, but the rash hasn't completely gone away yet. I am returning the bra since it sounds like washing it doesn't remove whatever is in the frabric that is causing the rash.
I'm hightly allergic to ivory soap. Some people are also allergic to Tide detergent. That's why a dermatologist might be helpful in finding out what's going on. She might even be allergic to hair in general. You mentioned she gave you a haircut the other day and she "broke out" on her stomach. When you say "break out", I'm assuming you mean a rash. .
I had washed the Secret Embrace bras but that did not help. I hope is it is chemical. If it were latex allergy, I think I would have rash from my underpants as well. I do not. I wonder if it is specific to VS bras?
Hello, From the symptoms it can be contact dermatitis, sweat dermatitis or allergic reaction. Oral antihistamine, such as Benadryl can also be used. You should take a comfortably cool bath and wear smooth-textured cotton clothing. You should choose mild soaps without dyes or perfumes and use a mild, unscented laundry detergent when washing clothes, towels and bedding. Please take a second opinion from a dermatologist if the symptoms persist.
I recently was told that maybe im allergic to soap. Since this happened I have changed my soap, laundry detergent and do not use anything down there that would irritate except soap and I use Dove unscented. I also have a rash in my anal area and was misdiagnosed with the doctor's saying I had genital warts but when I went last the OBGYN specilist told me it was a rash. He gave me some steriod cream and im also taking Antihestimens.Im so confused and at my wits end.
It is true that some women are allergic to semon. Just like some women are allergic to condoms. It could just be your allergic to his particular semon, and not every other mans. Ask your boyfriend if he is eatting anything that you are allergic to.
Hello, Please elaborate on the symptoms whether the rash is itchy, red, spreading or hot. It can be allergic contact dermatitis, erythrasma or fungal infection. Since you had a new carpet installed it could have been due to an allergic reaction like if you are allergic to dust mites etc. Oral antihistamine, such as Benadryl can also be used if there is itching. You should take a comfortably cool bath and wear smooth-textured cotton clothing.
It's like clockwork. At around that time every day, I can expect to be covered from head to toe in this rash. The thing is, nothing has changed as far as what I've eaten, the soap and laundry detergent. I have no idea what's going on. The dermatologist has no idea what it is, so he sent me to an allergist. The allergist did the skin test on me and it came back positive for everything. So he says he couldn't tell me until more testing was done.
Hello, This skin rash can be due to hives or contact dermatitis. Hives (medically known as urticaria) are red, itchy, raised areas of skin that appear in varying shapes and sizes. They have a tendency to change size rapidly and to move around, disappearing in one place and reappearing in other places, often in a matter of hours. Both can occur after contact with any allergen be it cloth also.However it can also be due to use of detergents in which the shirts have been prewashed.
Scabies is a contagious skin infection caused by a parasite – the mite, which burrows under the host’s skin and causes intense allergic itching. It is transmitted from objects or beddings, but more with direct skin- to – skin contact. It is characterized by intense itching, usually at night and by small insect-type bites lesions on the skin. Diagnosis of scabies is made by scraping the skin and viewing the material under a microscope to see the characteristic mite or eggs.

Hello, Without examination,confirmation of a diagnosis is tough,but it can be due to fungal infections like ring worm,eczema, psoriasis,dermatitis, scabies or irritation and allergic reactions to chemicals,wool,soaps,cosmetics,clothes and certain foods. You can apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area. Oral antihistamine, such as Benadryl can also be used. You should take a comfortably cool bath and wear smooth-textured cotton clothing.
Hello, Such a rash which appears suddenly and spreads on the body can be due to allergic reaction or viral infection. The other possibility since torso is involved is of pityriasis rosea. Oral antihistamine, such as Benadryl can also be used. You should take a comfortably cool bath and wear smooth-textured cotton clothing. Covering the affected area with bandages and dressings can help protect the skin and prevent scratching.
I developed a rash/hives of some sort yesterday. It started under my armpits and faded away, then went to my chest, hands, feet...all bilateral. They disappear shortly and then move around to other areas of my body...sometimes varying on how bad it itches or swells. It's light red in the center and dark on the outside, looks slightly like a bug bit. The only thing different I did the other day was eat a blueberry muffin that I have never had from that particular store.
There are no blisters but she can usually feel clear liquid seeping from her skin the night before she wakes up with a spot. Please, any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
