I have an allergic reaction to Facial products especially the creams. One day after use my skin start to itch, day two my face is red, swollen and it itches. It seems like the toners and creams cause this. It stays this way for 2-3 days before it gets better. The only thing I now use is dove soap and castor oil as a cream.

skin allergy to everything

Since I was a baby, my skin has been allergic to everything except cotton. All other materials, plants, grass, earth, and all cosmetics, natural or synthetic, cause rashes but they rarely itch and only last for about a half hour after contact is stopped. So I use no make up or jewellery, just vaseline for moisture, and have plenty of cotton undershirts. My advice to others is try using nothing at all, just plain water with very mild soap and shampoo without lanolin or perfume - hard to find. Is there anyone else out there like me??

itching for no reason

I have no idea why my body is itching all over! Its been going on for about a week. No rash or anything. It just starts itching. Even my scalp. All day, all night. Its pretty awful and I don't know why its happening. I haven't changed anything in my diet, my laundry detergent, my skin care products. Just all of a sudden, I'm itching all over all the time.
