In brief: Triclosan & allergy

Triclosan was linked to increased risk for developing environmental allergies in a 2010 study.
Using products containing triclosan seemed to make children more likely to develop problems like allergic rhinitis (hay fever). Other types of problems with triclosan such as contact dermatitis are possible but are rare.
