Enquiry for Allergies to Newspaper Print
 
I have been suffering with Eczema for greater than years. During that Time I have been a daily reader of the printed version of the Washington Post. As far as I can tell, although I have had allergy testing, nothing have ever demonstrated an allergy to newspaper print. Yet recently (past 6 months or so) my Eczema has become increasing severe, and I am wondering if the composition of the newsprint has changed.

Do you heat it in the oven before reading?

That you Titchou for your reply to my posting, "Enquiry for Allergies to Newspaper Print". I would have never thought of heating the newspaper in the oven before reading, I would expect it to catch on fire.

Drying in the oven on a low heat is the standard for people with a newsprint allergy. I know several people over the years who have had to do this.
