Allergic dermatitis.: Make sure you have washed off all the oil. An antihistamine, such as Diphenhydramine or loratidine, may be helpful. If no relief contact your physician, he may consider prescribing an oral steroid. In any case, avoid further exposure to the oil that caused this. ...Read more

If there are no new medications, then i would try to control the symptom by using a non-sedating anti-histamine such as claritin, Allegra or zyrtec. If the symptom continues it might be time to see an allergist. ...Read more

No problem w/ oil: If you are allergic to sunflower seed, you may still eat or cook with the highly purified oil. The allergy is to the proteins in the sunflower seed.

Can you tell me if i could use skincare products with almond oil if I have a nut allergy?

If applied to open or damaged skin, these food based products can cause you to become sensitized to the food itself, putting you at risk for developing an allergy. I recommend fragrant-free, dye-free products like Vanicream, Aquaphor, Eucerin, or Cetaphil ...Read more
