NavymomT's Journal, 12 July 2016

i am trying my best not to vent or complain as much as i have been but i do have to say this....i washed my bed linens and clothes in a new fragrance laundry detergent on Sunday...Yesterday i started breaking out on my right arm, right leg, and back...This morning when i woke up, i was broke out on both arms, across my chest, and down my right leg. So with that being said, i went to work for a little bit and then came home because i was itching. I stopped by and bought some perfume and dye free laundry detergent to rewash my clothes and bed linen. Then i took more benedryl. I hope rewashing everything will help this crap go away. I have never had a reaction to laundry detergent like this.

I don't think people realize that the fragrance is all chemicals. TOXIC. Unless you buy without chemicals or make your own with essential oils.

I had recent allergy testing and found out much information on how we can get sensitized simply by overload...even natural scents, essential oils can cause nasty effects. Best really to go no dye, no perfumes (even natural scents). Once sensitized body reacts to lots of things it did not before. Even soaps are notorious for additives. Be careful and read labels of things you already have...research what things are and limit any additives with new purchases. Many companies being more responsive in this area these days. Sorry you have the rash. I found that loratadine tablets (just 1 every 24 hours) work great! Cheap and do not make you drowsy. Not sure about drug reactions though so if on any check with your pharmacist for interactions. Take care.

Wow, sorry that you have had this happen! I always use perfume and dye free laundry detergents and no fabric softeners or "dryer towels," which can remain in freshly washed clothes. Those car air fresheners, scented candles etc are also bad - many use formaldehyde. The best use for scented dryer towels is at outdoor picnics where meat bees are prone to be pests. If you put those dryer towels propped up in glasses about the table the bees will stay keep away from the area by about 2 ft. THEY know they're bad.

Oh yeah, and I put an open box of those dryer towels in a shed and I didn't get any spiders or wasps for about 2 years.
