In Reply to: possible lipstick allergy? posted by Caron Russell on May 10, 2000 at 18:53:52:

: I've been experiencing this problem for over five years. I've gone to a dermatologist and allergist and they can't figure out what is causing the rashes on my lips. The condition occurs approximately once a month. I develop a rash on and around my lips. The bumps are extremely tiny. They don't itch or burn. It usually goes away after five or so days (rash will dry-up, lips peel and that's it). I thought it was the type of lipstick (MAC)that I was wearing/the vaseline until I had the same reaction while snorkeling, only worse. Then I thought it may be the mouthpiece of the snorkeling gear mixed with the salt water. The condition occurs more in the summer. I apply vaseline prior to my lipstick. I can't figure this out. Can anyone help?

hi really e-mail me-- this is a sing of a latex sensitivity. your in the early stages but you can at anytime have a sever reaction with out worring. you need a epi-pen for your own safty. see and allergist have them test you for latex do not have let them have you brath into a latex glove this can kill you. it can take 72 from the time of contact to the time you break out look up alert on the internet it is a support group. also have the dermatologist have you have apatch test called the true test this is chemicals that are found in both of these itmen called colophony and mbt this will give you a great list of things you should avoid. these allergies took over my life and lamost killed me . educated your self so you can stay healthy. you can stay healthy if you know what to avoid. marguerite
