I may have injested following things shoul ibe worried, PVP, DIMETHICONE, kaolin, titanium dioxide, Vp/VA copolymer, propylene glycol from nose strip?

No: I am assuming you mean a nasal strip like Breath Right. None of those compounds cause significant toxicity, especially ingested in the small amount that would be present in a nasal strip. No need for concern.

Are there glycerin and propylene glycol free lotions?

Are there glycerin and propylene glycol free lotions?

CereVe: There is a line of creams, lotions, and cleansers called cereve, which is available over the counter. They are free of propylene glycol. They are expensive but worth it if you are allergic. I have just become aware that I am allergic-- this propylene glycol is everywhere----deodorants, cottonelle wipes, etc, so just switching lotions may not be enough! Yikes! Good luck to both of us!
