Re: Soap Allergy

It's probably the fragrance or other ingredients. Try one of of the natual glycerine soaps or perhaps Ivory or Dove. Some people have luck with them.

Re: Soap Allergy

weezy, You are not alone! You need to discover what it is about the soap that you are allergic to.

Also, you can just do what most of us do.. start experimenting. I dont use bar soap anymore.. as I had all sorts of problems with those years ago.

I use a liquid soap instead. There are many out there that are specially designed for those with sensitive skin. Take time to go the store and start looking at brand names and start reading labels. The all natural and fragrance free ones is a good place to start.

I am allergic to ivory and dove.. which most people think is not a harsh soap. Not on my skin.

Good luck. Tammy

Re: Soap Allergy

Ivory and Dove are horrible to my skin as well.

I use Aveeno bar soap in the tub and shower (Aveeno liquid soap or moisturizers have additives that adversely affect my skin) and Spectro(TM) Gel (this is the gentlest yet) at the sink.

Good luck!
