Is there a home remedy for a rash from an allergic reaction to soap?

Yes for minor rash: If you truly have contact allergy caused by soap, the first step is to avoid the product. Overuse of soap can cause irritant dermatitis due to over-drying the skin. Fragrances and preservatives in soap can cause allergic contact dermatitis. If product avoidance and over the counter Hydrocortisone do not improve your rash, see you dermatologist. Read more

Got a rash after using the intuition razor (the one with the soap already on there) could this be an allergic reaction or razor bumps. What can I do to get rid of them?

Got a rash after using the intuition razor (the one with the soap already on there) could this be an allergic reaction or razor bumps. What can I do to get rid of them?

Keep area clean: The reaction is most likely an irritant reaction from the razor. Depending on the area of the bumps, I would just try keeping the area clean with soap and water first. If it was bad and would not go away, you could try an over the counter Hydrocortisone cream. I would not use this treatment on the face or private areas. Read more

Address the cause: Seems the treatments you have tried are not addressing the cause. One common cause of rashes is food allergies- common allergens include dairy, gluten, eggs, soy, citrus & almonds- try avoiding for 2 weeks and add back one at a time. You might also be deficient in b vitamins, essential fatty acids or zinc. If these measures don't help consult a holistic md- see http://www. Abihm. Org/search-doctors. Read more

Dermatologist time: Persistent chapped lips may be lip eczema, which can be treated like skin eczema, using hydrocortisone cream, plus Vaseline or Aquaphor to moisturize. Sometimes, lipsticks or lip sunscreen chemicals are causing allergic reactions on lips. Other times, a person is a primary lip-licker (it's her habit). Once cracked, lips get irritated by routine foods and juices. Dermatologist can sort things out Read more

Dry skin: In the winter months, the first thing I consider would be dry skin. Try using unscented soap and apply a skin moisturizer all over within 3 minutes after bathing to see it this helps. It may take a few days for the skin to calm down. If problem persists, then need to consult a dermatologist or allergist. Read more
