Skin Allergies
I have been tested and I'm allergic to balsam of peru and pg. Nothing left for me to eat or drink. It's also in soaps. I don't know what to do. Anyone else suffering through this? This is all new.

Re: Skin Allergies
Wow...learned something today from looking it up. Did the doctor give you a list of foods/products that are OK for you to use?

What is pg?

Re: Skin Allergies
Propylene glycol and balsam of peru are not in natural ingredients... look into organic and all natural soaps. I am allergic to 100 different common household chemicals- found this out with patch testing.

My allergist gave me a website which allowed me to find out what products do not contain my allergens...everything from household goods like laundry detergents and soaps and facial wash to cosmetics and hair products.

There are tons of allergy free companies online- most are not sold in stores- but they are out there. Ask your allergist for suggestions.
