Laundry Detergent With Microbeads
Hard to find answer: I have looked hard to find an answer to this. The closest I came was one website that said that the detergent alone might not cut through the resin, but that the agitation of the laundry cycle may knock it out. My advice: stay away from it, especially if it is illegal in your jurisdiction and you are on parole for something already;). ...Read more

In the sense that you can use less detergent and lower temperatures to get the same stains out, they are cost-effective. They are biodegradable, but could cause respiratory allergies in large quantities such as in factories.

Rarely: Hives are rarely if ever caused by laundry detergent although may get a contact or irritant dermatitis from it. I often caution people about using fabric softener or anti-static strips which tend to increase the itching. For most cases of hives, oral antihistamine up to 4 doses per day would be the first choice. ...Read more

My son and I have small itchy spots that are all over our bodies. Could this be from the new laundry detergent?
Yes: Certainly possible along with possibilities of other allergic responses or insect bites. Anti-itching medication or lotion such as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or calomine may relieve symptoms. Go back to the old detergent, wait several weeks and reuse the new to prove reaction or not. ...Read more
Yes: Detergents and soaps are caustic chemicals. Too much can irritate the skin leading to an irritant contact dermatitis. Studies show that we don't even need detergents in our clothing washers, just the gyration itself cleans the clothes. If you use anything, use hypoallergenic and use 1/2 whatever they recommend. ...Read more

Compulsions: This falls into the category of a compulsion. It is one thing to like the smell of a soap, another to crave it. You may have other compulsions of anxieties as well.

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

Are DIY laundry detergent recipes containing borax truly a safer alternative as 'they' say? I would like to try it for my child's sensitive skin.
It depends.: The basic ingredients of laundry detergent are washing soda, Borax and soap. Most studies show borax is safe for mammals including people, even tho it's deadly to many insects. Like any household cleaner, homemade detergent and its ingredients MUST BE KEPT AWAY FROM CHILDREN. My recommendation is to purchase detergents that have only these ingredients and spend the time you save with family. ...Read more
Can laundry detergent that may possibly not have been rinsed enough cause penis area to become painful and unsettling. Too much sensation from area?
Doubtful, but...: Most commonly, irritants from a contact dermatitis would not just affect the penis, but the whole area that would come in contact with the clothes that were affected by the detergent. Check with the Dermatologist or your Dr. To have the area looked at, as most likely, it is some other dermatitis/balanitis issue. Best wishes. ...Read more
I went to the doctors 2 days ago and they diagnosed me with dermatitis...and I assumed it was the recent change in laundry detergents. Clean clothes?
I've used the same deodorant for 15 years and haven't changed laundry detergent or body wash in years. I keep getting the knots under my arms very soar?
Hidradenitis?: This sounds like infection deep in the skin, perhaps hidraditis suppurativa, or maybe just straightforward folliculitis. Search online for more information about HA including photos. I doubt this has anything to do with your deodorant. Still, best to stop using it for the time being and see your doctor. This should be easy to diagnose. Curing HA can be difficult, but control usually is possible. ...Read more

Which are the most effective detergents and laundry methods to use after having a staph infection?
Hot water: The brand doesn't mean as much as it's important, for seven days, to wash in hot water, all sheets and towels, every day, for seven days don't reuse. Also use disposable razors during this time, and it helps to use antibacterial soap (sometimes prescription) lather up for 10 minutes then rinse, along with antibiotic by mouth and ointment in the nose. Good luck. ...Read more
I spilled a lot of laundry detergent on my hand and rinsed it off. Should I be concerned about chemical burns or anything like that?
You should be ok: Laundry detergent is just soap, so you should not have to worry about getting a chemical burn. Of course it is important to wash off, but you should be fine as long as you do so. If you spilled bleach or some other harsh chemical then you might need to be more concerned, but even then, as long as you wash well you will probably be fine. Contact poison control if concerned 1-800-222-1222. ...Read more

I think I'm allergic to my laundry detergent. Extreme itchiness in vagina since a week with extreme unusual dryness. Had xyzal (levocetirizine) but it didn't help????
See GYN: I doubt that your laundry detergent is the cause for the internal vaginal dryness and itching. I would have expected problem at the labia if this is a laundry detergent or anti-static strip issue. At your age, the itching is more likely from allergy to something introduced into the vagina in the absence of a discharge- latex, semen etc. ...Read more
Allergic reaction to laundry detergent. I have a terrible rash and can't sleep. I get severe akathisia from antihistamines. What else can I take?
Detergent reaction: You can try OTC topical hydrocortisone 1% cream. Akathesia, although very rare, may occur with first generation antihistamines as diphenhydramine (Benadryl), hopefully not the case with the newer less sedating as loratadine or desloratadine, as for your akathesia vs RLS, I believe you need to see an experienced neurologist for assessment, best wishes ...Read more

My whole body is itchy- legs, arms, trunk, face. Could it be the body wash I'm using (suave) or the laundry detergent (tide)?
Possibly: Contact allergies can occur when an allergen is in contact with the skin. Body washes, detergents, perfumes/colognes, cosmetics, metals, etc., can all cause contact reactions. The requirement is that the allergen must be in direct contact with the skin. It is rare for these allergies to affect the entire body. In your case, I'm more concerned about an underlying virus or environmental allergy. ...Read more
Burning around penis foreskin and tip of penis. No STD or uti. I think it started when I switched to a new laundry detergent. Not sure though?
Ouch!: Was that new laundry detergent called Drano? Well, probably not. It's a long shot anyways because I don't think it would just involve the tip. You said no UTI/STD, how so?? Seen a doctor? Anyways, ever heard of 'balanoposthitis? 'Didn't think so (try saying it with your mouth full of graham crackers)For that you need to go back to your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. It's inflammation of the tip. ...Read more
