Does fragrance skin products damage skin in long term use?

Good morning @dmai98 Welcome to Connect. Thanks, @amandaburett for the welcome.

The fragrance is frequently a suspect and quite often the culprit in skin allergens. There are two categories…Fragrance I and Fragrance II. These lists are available from your dermatologist. They compose 122 pages of "skin safe" products for both fragrances and fragrance masks (products that are used to mask or coverup unwanted fragrances in products).

The categories include everything that you might have contact with, from your laundry detergent to your eye makeup. There is a patch or strip test that can be used to determine which fragrances have antagonists that cause reactions of atopic dermatitis and other skin diagnoses.

Have you had a strip or patch test? I have just completed the testing and am replacing products. I also use sheets with silver in them and anti-bacterial elements.

What sunscreens are you using now? What reactions do you have? Do you resort to scratching and then see a red rash? Don't worry…we all have the habit of scratching. There are also very effective prescription ointments that work well when you have an outbreak.

When I see a little more information from you about your current skin problem…I may be able to be more helpful.

May you be free of suffering and the causes of suffering.
Chris
