I have an allergy to sulfur. Would this allergy mean I am allergic to sodium laureth sulfate found in body wash?

I have allergy with shampoo my skin is getting as dots some of my skin gets black dots just I use sulfer soup that is less good what to do?

Avoid sulfa soap: First you need to change shampoo and in fact sulfa may cause intense local skin reactions if you are allergic to sulfa. A topical cortisone will likely help but you will need to get a rx for it. There may be other causes for your scalp problem especially if the lesions don't itch, . ...Read more

I may hav an allergy to sulfates (after x'ing eggs, rashes bettr but not gone). Cant find body wash & shamp thats sulfate free and gluten-free. Ideas?

Don't bother.: There are lots of sulfate-free shampoos (read the label). There are gluten-free shampoos too, but that is unnecessary. Unless you are drinking your shampoo for some reason, there is no way that shampooing your hair can cause a gluten enteropathy in your bowel. The "gluten-free" hype is really getting out of hand. Gluten is quite safe for all but a small number of gluten-sensitive people. ...Read more
