Angry Tea Tree Oil WARNING

Hi gang

I was putting tea tree oil on my face (2 drops on a wet cotton swab) for a
couple of months and saw very good results. I then started putting it on my
right pinky toe because the nail was looking kinda funky. It was clearing
it up nicely but on Monday I woke up and my toes were all swollen and
blistering. I went to the urgent care and I have been on steroids since
Monday. Tomorrow is my last day on them, but they have made me break out
pretty badly. Prednisone raises your blood sugar, so it as if I am no
longer carb free. My face is oily and breaking out! arrrgghhhh

One doctor told me he sees quite a few allergic reactions to tea tree oil.
So for any of you using it, stop it if it ever causes any kind of redness at
all. I saw my pinky toe get red and I ignored it like a dumbass, and now I
wound up having a pretty severe reaction.
