A MYSTERIOUS RASH ON A WOMAN'S HANDS & LIPS STUMPED SPECIALISTS

- By Sandra G. Boodman - The Washington Post - July 28, 2014

Excerpts:

. . . At her second appointment Zirwas examined her back, confirming his hunch: The only strong reaction Omiatek displayed was to a chemical called

methyllisothiazolinone, MI for short, Methyl Isethionate

which is used in high concentration in hundreds of beauty and personal care products.

In Omiatek’s case, MI was in the new brand of “sensitive” baby wipes she had begun using a few weeks before the hand rash erupted. The pattern of the rash, which was on her right, dominant hand, matched the way one would use a wipe.

MI was also in the dishwashing soap she used as well as in her soap and shampoo. . . .

. . . estimates that about half of the approximately 300 MI allergy patients he has seen were using wipes. . . .

. . . Unlike shampoo or soap that is rinsed off, the substances in toilet wipes remain on the skin, in a part of the body where evaporation does not occur.

“It gets driven into the skin, perpetuating the problem,” said Zirwas, noting that it takes months for the rash to clear entirely after a patient stops using the product. . . .

. . . The concentration of MI in some personal-care products was increased about five years ago to replace other preservatives, including formaldehyde, which have been linked to health problems.

“People thought it was going to be” an effective replacement, Zirwas said, “but around two or three years ago, we started seeing an incredible increase in the number of people allergic to it.” . . .

. . . She also learned she was allergic to the brand of “sensitive baby sunscreen . . . .


[In some Seventh Generation products, so be care to not assume "good" products are as good as they may claim. I was shocked to realize I'd been using products with this in it. When I switched to ACURE Shampoo, my scalp healed]

h&p: here you go:

This cured a years-long scalp and skin problem for me. I had been using Avalon organics but found out they contain some things that they should not -- and my scalp was very glad for the switch. This line is more in line with clean ingredients than is Avalon.

http://www.acureorganics.com/

ACURE Organics - to learn about them - note they (or most of their products) are gluten free - this seems to really matter to my skin & scalp (as I'm celiac).


http://www.acureorganics.com/v/locator/

Store locations - this might just be in a market near you.


http://www.vitacost.com/productResults.aspx?N=0&ss=1&Ntt=Acure

ACURE Organics - at VitaCost

I have severe MCS and both of these work very well for me even though they have some flower / plant scents they are very light, better than any of their "unscented" products that were just awful stinky for me. The stores often have these on sale but consistently good prices often at the online vendors.

A hint for those with MCS: Mint or Lemon (as long as it is real, not synthetic) may work. I've found lavender to be a knock out, though lilac is much kinder if not too much used.

No scented fragrance . . . and it really has very little aroma to it.

I got this from VitaCost but don't see it there today.

http://www.acureorganics.com/product-p/073.htm

Acure Yummy Baby 4-in-1 Foamer hand soap - unscented (yes, it's good in that regard)

This bottle is very sturdy and can be reused. I found it just a little drying so now, I actually use a little of the shampoo with water for my hand soap in this bottle.

I am happy to say I USED TO get them. I got rid of them once and for all by applying extract of white thyme.

I think i may have diluted it in green tea. It only took a week or so and I smelled good enough to eat!

thyme oil is a good antiseptic antibacterial. There is some eveidence that it is good for acne too.
