thanks for the suggestion; I have not heard of cetaphil but I will enquire if it's available (I'm in the UK) and try it. I'm in my fifties and have never before had an allergic reaction to anything other than the houseplant primula obconica which can cause an allergic reaction to many people. I have heard it said that many people find Avon products "harsh" but I have never encountered any problems with them over the years until now and I really need to find out what it is that is causing my problem (hot burning red swollen skin, often taking 24-48 hours to erupt after contact with the creams).
