Coconut oil skin allergy

Common Questions and Answers about Coconut oil skin allergy


Avatar n tn I have patch tested coconut oil on my skin many times with no reaction. When i put it in my hair as a conditioner or near my face, my eyes get sticky, and i get post nasal drip and feel like i have a bad cold. Is this an allergic reaction to coconut oil even though it does not effect my skin?

Avatar m tn Allergy blood testing requires only one needle stick (unlike skin testing). This may be more attractive for people who are afraid of needles. Allergy blood testing is the preferred test for infants and very young children However..... Disadvantages of allergy blood tests include: 1. More expensive than skin testing. Many health insurers do not cover allergy blood tests. 2. May be less sensitive than skin tests. 3.
209987 tn?1451939065 Use the Neil Med Nasal irrigation system. Make sure you are taking a good multi and are fully hydrated. You can also swab some coconut oil in your nose with a q-tip after irrigating to keep it from drying out - its also antibacterial and antiviral. Good health to you!
Avatar f tn Had an allergy to skin product once, but it disappeared after I started using it, hope it would be the same in your case.

Avatar f tn Best to feed no grain for kibble and canned food which usually doesn't have a lot of grain/filler. I think I saw on a post here that Coconut oil can be helpful in treating skin problems... I can't say it has been of any help for me or my dog.
5586759 tn?1370438872 I have given her multiple different type of skin soothing baths including Apple Cider Vinegar, Oatmeal, Coconut oil and medications. Nothing has stopped. I realize that each time she is bitten by a flea (even though it dies) it can cause a pump or irritation, but she is gnawing and scratching herself to death. I keep flea treatments on her. Put her on a basic diet with no additives for food and even an e-collar on her. So far I can not get her poor skin under control.
Avatar f tn There is well a test, the firts one is small capsules against the skin, then they check reaction after 2 days, than 4 days, and one on the skin with a drop of reactant, then they pick and see the reaction. After 2 months, it has decreased already due to the removal of bad food (pork, potatoes, tomatoes, cheese, all thinks that can get old and ferment). According to doctor he expect me to go back to normal life after 12 to 24 months.
Avatar f tn Maybe he is just sloughing off old skin, maybe it's an allergy (food, environmental, air borne.........). You can try adding some Omega 3 to his food daily and see if that helps the skin condition. Are you bathing him often? If so, in what and are you making sure to rinse the products out thoroughly? The only way you can see if it is a food allergy is to do an elimination diet and keep a diary and that can take a while.
Avatar f tn One note on the allergy - I don't show an allergy to anything on a skin test - it has to be a blood test for Celiac (wheat allergy). Currently, I haven't taken any thyroid meds for a month because when I quit eating wheat my energy went sky hi & now the thyroid hormone (even 1/2 my regular dose of synthetic which ususally gives me no energy) makes my heart race and I get way too hyper . So I can't take anything until after I talk with doc tomorrow.
Avatar n tn My hair has been brittle and falling out much more than it should for a 40 year old. No matter what I put on it, natural coconut oil, it would not take to it. I went to Dr. Clifford in Nashville, All About Health, and couldn't believe I was allergic to my hair. He tests for about 20 different things, thru his therapy, not just one at a time, like some NAET therapists do, who could ever afford that? We pay 60.00 and have insurance, those that don't pay about 85.00.
Avatar n tn I have tried everything fragrance free, I think it's also cetyl alcohol, coconut oil, olive oil, avacado oil, cocobetaine, sodium laurel sulfate. What is wrong with my immune system? please help.
Avatar f tn So I put lotion on my belly every day and night and I rub coconut oil on it every now and then as well but I still keep getting dry patches mainly around my belly button that itch really bad. I'm 24 weeks 4 days and want to get it taken care of before I start getting bigger! Not sure what else I can try so I'd love some suggestions!
Avatar m tn since the past month have small boils, that erupt all over the back, arms, and legs which turn into scabs and are itchy to discomfort. Apply coconut oil, and creames but no help except temperory relief. waiting for allergy blood reading, which they have taken 3 weeks ago!Live in Belgium.
Avatar f tn (I also have a latex allergy) coconut oil is an anti bacterial (My tattoo artist reccomends it for new tattoos) and anti fungal (no maybe a less chance of a yeast infection) so is it safe to use as lube? I use coconut oil to shave because my skin is super sensitive and it doesn't bother me or my boyfriend. I just don't want to put something in there that doesn't belong. I have the Trader Joe's extra virgin coconut oil that only has coconut in it m.
Avatar f tn cols, very cold, hot, very hot (or me it is very very hot water) Moisture your skin daily with any natural oil (coconut oil, argan oil, olive oil...
Avatar n tn OMG! Yes, I have Oral Allergy Syndrome, too! It's awful! I can no longer use my favorite herbs to season my foods. And, it's impossible to be a vegetarian with so many sensitivities to all those vegetables. So many of the vegetables and herbs you mentioned are all in the same family. I found out that I may also be allergic to something called mugwort, due to the latex allergy. More than likely, you're also allergic to ragweed, since so many people are.
Avatar f tn This is one company I know and trust. They used to use olive oil, but now they are using coconut or palm oil. That's good, unless you're allergic to coconut or palm oil. But, it is NOT soy. They use no animal products, which also respects how vegetarians and vegans feel. Here is the page: You will have to read the labels carefully.
Avatar n tn used micanozole nitrate cream (2%) available in pharmacy on scrotum, twice daily, after showering and drying the area thoroughly with hair dryer. Applied coconut oil on top of this. (coconut oil has a unique composition that breaks down yeast cell walls upon contact. this will kill large amounts of yeast every day) 8. Ate yogurt (sugarfree) as often as possible. Tried different kinds to get all kinds of helpful bacteria. The problem is now 95% gone.
Avatar n tn Once it stops etching, I take out my feet and dry those with a towel, without rubbing. 2- Soon after I apply some oil (may be brassica oil, olive oil or whatever natural oil i can get) to it... As soon as I feel my skin drying, I apply oil again. Usually 4 to 5 times in 4 to5 hours. This not only stops etching for 4 to 5 hours, but gradually reduces the intensity of inflamation as well. I repeat this after every 5 to 8 hours.
16205021 tn?1446084035 There are a number of reasons for the condition of your facial skin, so you do need to see your doctor or a dermatologist to identify what exactly it is to be able to get the appropriate treatment. Coconut oil is antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal and can also be used for cooking, baking, eating it as well as for cosmetic reasons. Only use the Virgin Coconut oil. If you do wish to try this, do so on a small area of skin to make sure that you do not have an allergy to it.
Avatar m tn I haven't seen Dr Osborne's videos, but I've read Dr Kharrazian's (better known as "Dr K") book. A lot of science does not bear out what they say about gluten and the similarity to thyroid tissue, etc. However, from the research I've been doing and from my own experience, if our microbiome is not balanced i.e. if there becomes more bad organisms than good ones, we can have a lot of trouble. I just read an article the other day, that said, H.
Avatar f tn 250 - 380 µg/dL Natural way to raise low DHEA levels include eating healthy fats such as eggs, coconut oil, nuts, and seeds that are high in omega-3 fatty acids; avoid sodas, sweets, and other junk foods that can stress the body; moderate exercise and reduce stress. There is also DHEA supplements available.
Avatar n tn I was reading another post and someone suggested pure coconut oil. I have that in the house so I decided to go put some on my badly scratched arms and... I am NOT ITCHING!!! This might be the easiest remedy ever if it continues to work! Please try it and spread the word if it works for you! This suggests it might be fungal -which I did suspect-coconut oil is anti-fungal. That (fungus) would be normal during the summer- in lakes and at the beach in moist conditions even humidity.
127124 tn?1326739035 Our 2 year old golden retriever developed a severe skin allergy in january. She was treated with prednisone and antibiotics. Within days of being off the meds the rash returned. The vet thougth it was a food allergy. We changed her food and she recovered. Now 3 months later she has developed the rash again. We bathe her with an oatmeal shampoo but she broke out even worse. She is constantly itching and has dry skin. She chews the pads on her feet until they bled.

19367816 tn?1476495420 Aquaphor, Blistex, plain vaseline, beeswax which were all fine before this problem began but now have an opposite effect. I do use coconut oil, olive oil and honey (when I am at home) but it doesn't fix the root of the problem. I noticed when I use products containing Lanolin the dead skin becomes white and moist; my lips feel like they are sweating. When I use plain Vaseline mixed with coconut oil my lips burn as if I've put acid on them, since then I noticed small red bumps had formed.
Avatar n tn that's is most likely not skin cancer at all. it sounds like tinea versicolor possibly. google that term and look at the images. if that's what you have it is a fungal infection that is often times caught in tanning beds. that is absolutely not the only place people catch it, but common. and it is very very common on the chest and back. easily treatable. you'll need a prescription. skin cancer comes by way of scaly sores, weird bumps , lesions etc.
