Allergic rash from detergent

Common Questions and Answers about Allergic rash from detergent


Avatar n tn Scratching makes it worse or even if it is a rash or bite it makes those worse too. What does it look like? If it is eczema or a rash you may be allergic to your detergent or something else. Try using fragrance and dye free detergents and other items on your skin. Also, Eucerin , Restoraderm works well to calm down itching. I use a topical steroid for my legs and hands. You have to get this from your doctor. If you get a topical steroid don't get it in your eyes or face.
Avatar f tn I am using purex baby!!!
Avatar f tn The only time I get rashes is when I eat Ginger (I'm allergic)... But my rash always starts on my stomach, then neck, then face... Then my tongue swells up. And it spreads from there if I don't take benedryl. So... Maybe you ate something that pregnancy triggered an allergic rxn to. In any case, callvyour doc or midwife asap. Even a simple allergy can be life threatening.
15065362 tn?1438203687 I am a ftm and I was wondering what kind of detergent I should use whenever I wash his clothes. He's not here yet so I'd like to know before he gets here. TIA!
Avatar m tn My mom always had to buy a really cheap detergent because EVERYTHING else made me break out. It was powder and didn't work really well. 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.
7765842 tn?1406963224 Just buy the scent and dye free stuff for the baby. He/she has sensitive skin and the dyes/perfumes could potentially cause a rash or an allergic reaction. I wouldn't use regular soap just to be on the safe side. You don't have to buy the detergents specifically for baby as they are more expensive. We used All Free & Clear for our first and everything was fine. My husband and I both have sensitive skin/allergies so we figured our children would too.
Avatar f tn I have pain daily and the pain meds really do not help at all.. Now I am getting a rash on my legs could this be caused from the gall stones. The pain is making me crazy.
Avatar m tn I have a new Warner's bra #01526. I didn't break out the first time I wore it, but each time thereafter I've broken out in a red, itchy rash on my breasts. The doctor said it was an allergic reaction, possibly from my detergent, and gave me a cream to use. I switched detergents and still break out. I think it might be the padding under the material. It's 89% nylon 11% elastane but it doesn't say what the material for the padding is for. Does anyone have an answer?
Avatar n tn If you only get this irritation when you sleep with your clothes on, then it clearly is an allergic reaction to the fabric not allowing your body to breathe. Take your day clothes off before going to bed and use nightwear or sleep naked.
Avatar m tn Think of everything that comes into contact with the area that has the rash, and see if you can think of something you might be allergic/sensative to. Are you wearing cotton underwear? Try all white, all cotton underwear and see if that helps. If you are able to, have you tried taking benedryl to see if that helps?
Avatar n tn Hello, It can be because of any allergic contact dermatitis to the condom, lubricant, the cosmetics or soap or detergent that you are using. If it appears as a red itchy rash then fungal infection needs to be ruled out. He can apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area. Oral antihistamine, such as Benadryl can also be used. He should take a comfortably cool bath and wear smooth-textured cotton socks.
Avatar f tn s baby was allergic to that baby def detergent, got a rash from it. She uses tide, which is what she wash her clothes in and didn't have a problem. So I just washed my baby clothes with what we use which is gain original. I will be paying close attention if she has a reaction then I'll re wash everything. But you cant really tell what they will be allergic to. I say don't worry just pay close attention, baby might not have a problem.
Avatar f tn Hello Stephanie, Rashes are horrible. You can also try going to www. and looking up the possible side effects of hydroxyzine. Have you started using any new products ? Some products that come to mind are shower gels, bath soap, washing machine detergent, powder or liquid. These things can cause rashes. My allergist once told me a lot of people are allergic to Tide detergent. I don't know if you use Tide detergent. If you do, stop using it.
Avatar f tn You can use any detergent basically as long as you dont switch. Because that can give your baby a rash. Or make him or her be allergic. Ive always used gain. And it has never made my baby rash up or anything but ive never changed it either.
Avatar f tn It doesn't matter. Obviously if someone in your family already has sensitive skin you should be cautious about what type of detergent you use. And just watch to see if your baby starts to get a rash. My family doesn't have any sensitivity issues and i dont use baby detetgent. I bought it for by first son 14 years ago and I'm sorry I wasted the money.
Avatar m tn Thanks for your reply Martika. No I do not have the rash on my hands actually. I had a pharmacist look at the rash and she said she is pretty sure it isn't scabies because she had them at one time, and said mine looks more like an allergic reaction. It is quite possible that it is the soap and detergent I've been using. So I switched to Dove unsented which is for very sensitive skin. I hope this rash subsides soon.
Avatar m tn laundry detergent; if you are allergic to it and still using it, the rash will remain until you do away with it. Your rash sounds like a possible contact dermatitis. Since doctors are out of the question, and you are having to resort to self-care, you might want to try some OTC hydrocortisone creams. Some rashes can become infected and you will have no choice, but to seek medical help. Good luck!
Avatar m tn As I said, the rash you describe does not suggest HIV. The ARS rash is usually measles-like: red spots, most common on the trunk and less common on the face, arms, and legs; not itchy; it persists for 1-2 weeks and does not come and go. Whatever is going on has absolutely nothing to do with your hand-job adventure. Zilch.
Avatar n tn sounds like you have a rash. Most likely due to an allergic reaction. Have you eaten anything new lately, worn new clothing, used a new washing detergent etc? They're the most common causes of an allergic reaction.
Avatar n tn I have had a extremely itchy rash mostly on my torso (below my breasts, around my waist, armpits, inside of my elbows, behind my knees, etc.) for a few weeks now. There is no rash on my legs. I went to the doctor a couple of weeks ago and he said it was due to detergent. I took all of the steroids (10mg) he prescribed and it subsided. Today, it is back and very itchy! What should I do next? Is there something I can try OTC to get rid of this? I tried Cortizone creams, etc.
Avatar n tn does it look like a rash or a scratch or a bite or blisters. what do you mean by welt?
Avatar f tn d have asked that first. If you had used a new soap or detergent as that does sound a bit like allergic dermatitis. A lot of the time, itching behind the knees and hips could be because of atopic dermatitis. Otherwise known as ezcema. Your itching the area causes the skin to be funky after. Do your best not to itch. I use a balm bought on amazon but also sold in drug stores for itchy ezcema skin. Aveeno Itching releif balm. Works great. This is info on ezcema. https://www.mayoclinic.
Avatar f tn Hi all, would really appreciate help with this. I started developing a rash under my arms six weeks ago and it has since spread all over my chest stomach and thighs. The ratchet is not itchy and I've already done a weeks course of allergic reaction tablets and used a cream for fungal infections. It's really beginning to annoy me that I can not get rid of it ! Any info on this would be great!
