Loud noise: Is the cause the soap or is it the loud noise of the laundry machine that bothers you ear? It sounds like its probably the noise. A visit to an ENT doctor should answer the question. The typical treatments for hyperacusis, called retraining therapy, can be very helpful. ...Read more

I get huge welts on my body everyday, i've changed my laundry detergent, soap, ect. But how can I find out what is causing this reaction?

Hives: Dr. Huang could be correct but 1 in 4 people at some point in their life will get hives. More often than not it is not what you are putting on the outside of your body (soaps, lotions, etc) but rather something is a little haywire in your body. Skin is the largest organ in your body, so illness can manifest there 1st sometimes. An allergist or dermatologist is best suited to find the cause. ...Read more

I am 5 wks preg. wondering if it is safe to use any kind of scented laundry soap and be breathing it in from it being on my clothes after washing them?

Use common sense: I researched the FDA and was not able to come up with a definitive answer. There are many websites touting safer more natural laundry detergents for babies and mothers with sensitive skin. I would avoid laundry detergents with harsh toxic chemicals. Most laundry detergents have been tested so that they are safe for pregnant women. ...Read more

What would cause a major rash from sholders to feet. If u have not changed laundry or bath soap.?

Any other exposures?: If your rash is truely localized you want to consider things you got into.

See a doctor: Either a dermatologist or gynecologist should be able to determine what kind of reaction you are having. It does sound like it could be an allergic reaction or contact dermatitis.
