how to tell if i am allergic to vitamin e oil?

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.

A 27-year-old female asked:

Is it bad to use expired vitamin E oil?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Bac Nguyen
Family Medicine 23 years experience
Just not as effectiv: All chemical compounds deteriorate with time and become less potent. Generally, medications have a predicted effective-shelf-life. Fortunately meds often don't spoil, but can become less and less effective being left in cabinet too long after expiring. So, it may not be bad to take, but it may not have as much therapeutic value if expired too long. Consult doc. Good luck.

Is there problem when I use 28, 000 iu vitamin E oil on my eyelids?

Porbably not: The oil may help improve the quality of the lid skin. It has not been approved for direct entry into the eye so use it sparingly on the lids only. A little spill over is inevitable and if it stings or seems to redden the eye, then stay away from the lash line.
