Vaseline is safe: Allergic reactions manifesting as skin rash can be red, itchy, burning, stinging, raised, blister-like or flat, limited or widespread. Itching is a very common symptom.

My daughter is allergic to vaseline based on her lips she used her friends lipsil now her lips are sore and swollen what can I buy to help her plzz?
Several options: Sorry to hear about the symptoms. Vaseline is rarely a great option for lip therapy. On the other hand, non-petroleum based moisturizers can help, in addition to antihistamines that may reduce the soreness/swelling. I like vanicream or cetaphil as moisturizers, and for antihistamines I like the non-drowsy options -- Allegra (fexofenadine) is a good choice, and it can last for 12-24 hours depending on the dose.

Couple things: It's very unusual to be allergic to petrolatum jelly, though it is occlusive and cause itching. Many people are allergic to lip balms of all kinds. But that causes allergic contact dermatitis; e.g. swelling, redness, then peeling over days...usually not "hives", meaning urticaria, that comes and goes over hours. And not in areas not applied (like the eyelids). Read more
