Mutiple Chemical Sensitivity


hi, my name is kaitlyn.  I can't have any fragrances period, or my skin goes bezerk!  i mean no soap, only cleansers, no make up, no regular shampoo and conditioner, even baby detergent isn't that great for me.  i'm constantly miserable because of my allergies and it's nearly impossible not to come in contact with fragrances everyday.

i look forward to meeting you, fellow sufferers, and learning how to deal with my allergies.

I find that avoidance is pretty hard, but it's also the best way of keeping me from feeling sick. Have you seen an allergist? I'm on an inhaler, which helps a little with everyday contacts, although it's not perfect. If your sensitivity is mostly skin-related I don't know if there's anything that they can help with, though. Maybe a dermatatologist might have some recommendations?

i've been to many allergy doctors and they just tell me to stay away from what i'm allergic to and that's it. i used to take shots but i don't anymore. right now, i'm trying to just move to all natural, no chemical type soaps and oils. wish me luck, haha!
