At 50, I've been very lucky to not be afflicted with any allergies but very recently I've started one!!!! I'm allergic to regular laundry detergent which I understand now is common BUT I've also gained another intolerance which seems less common. After using a Cottonelle toilet wipe when visiting a friends house.... I quickly (same day) broke out in a itchy rash. I know it was the wipe because the rash traces where I applied it. At night it's worse of course. As well, any hint of regular detergent (not perfume/dye free) in my underwear or jeans will also cause this itchy rash.
In short, the chemicals in most everyday cleaning products, detergents, toilet wipes are making me crazy not to mention unhealthy. I have since figured out to ACV, epsom salt in a bath to relieve the itch... It really doesn't matter the dosage... Just pour some into your shallow bath water. But more importantly, we all need to rebel/write these product makers and insist they stop putting unneccesary dyes/perfumes/chemicals in our everyday products. I now stick to clear/free EVERYTHING!
