No: It will not affect your skin.

Concentration: Any food, organic or not, is likely to contain traces of the elements found in nature. So strictly speaking, any food you grow or buy will have traces of any chemical you can think of.

Is it possible to catch strep throat from trying on clothing in a store? How long can the bacteria survive on cloth?
No worries: Life is full of possibilities, including catching strep throat while trying on clothes, but we don't worry about stuff like that. To catch strep in a dressing room, an infected person would do a huge sneeze and blow out infected droplets. The next shopper would open her mouth and suck in a huge breath of that same air, thus splattering the back of her throat with infected micro-droplets. Unlikely. ...Read more

Safer now: Back 30 or 40 years ago, in the 1970's, polyester was appearing in stores everywhere, but could subject one to relentless teasing if one wore it amongst the wrong crowd. That polyester was rough and unforgiving, but modern new polyester is pretty good stuff. It's safe to wear. It's soft and lays well but being a plastic (petroleum product), it still causes static. Cotton is softer, with no static. ...Read more

Simple Care best: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions.

Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. ...Read more
