Exposure & symptoms: Theoretically, if a product is only oil without protein or carbohydrate, it would be highly unlikely to have trigger an allergic reaction. If symptoms occurred after ingestion or application and improved with avoidance of the product, then this is suspicious for an adverse reaction. An allergist can review the other ingredients as it may be a hidden allergen.

Vitamin E: Yes, you can find bottles of vitamin E in most drug stores. They also have it in capsule form. Look for "mixed tocopherols" to get the best quality. Be sure to consult w/doctor first. Peace and good health.

On skin: Vit e oil on skin is used as an antioxidant which neutralizes substances on the skin that cause dryness and damage collagen in your skin. It can be used to treat minor sunburn. Taking vit e by mouth is also felt to combat chromosomal damage and thus cellular damage in the body and premature aging of the skin. You can make your own vit e oil by adding a tablespoon of olive oil to a few vit e caps.
