Getting allergy testing done next week. Since coming off antihistamines I've noticed how extreeeemely itchy my scalp/body is. Using Aveeno (oatmeal) is helping.
Dry skin: If the allergy skin testing is solely for itching without any nasal , eye. or respiratory symptoms, I believe that the yield is quite low. Your response to Aveeno suggests that dry skin is likely the cause and would recommend that you apply the lotion <3 minutes after bathing (avoid scented soap as well) to see if this helps. ...Read more

Yes, but....: Oatmeal is a very different grain than wheat is and it is rare that a person is allergic to both. However, many places that make cereals use the same equipment to process the oats as they do wheat, so cross contamination with small amounts of wheat can occur.

Possible: Try gluten-free oat to see if causes the same symptoms.

Does anyone know if any serious side effects will occur as a result of the aveeno mosturuzing lotion being placed intravaginally?
It depends on the circumstances. If you did it once, it should not have any effect. If you did it and had sex with a condom, the condom would have become ineffective. If you need a lubricant, use a water based jelly like K-Y jelly.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Aveeno (oatmeal): Not to my knowledgeGet a more detailed answer ›
Better options exist: When you have acne, you do not want to dry out your face, as it leads to compensatory oil production. Gentle cleansing is best. A foaming or gel cleanser with therapeutic amounts of compounds like salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid or beta hydroxy acid. Stay away from scrubs or buff pads.. For thorough cleansing, use your cleanser with the clarisonic skin care brush. ...Read more

Oils from the hair may also be in play so that may need to be addressed as well. ...Read more
