Has anyone else experienced a Tide Detergent rash lately?

I am asking because there seems to be some issues lately of people breaking out in rashes due to Tide. Both my husband and I have been using Tide, well, for forever. Starting in December, after our last purchase, we both broke out in itchy rashes. Several of our friends have had the same issues. When googling it, I did seem to find other concerns and it was mentioned that Tide might have started using different chemicals. Anyone else read, see or experience these symptoms?

  • I hadn;t heard of it- but my daughter has been breaking out in a rash lately so I switched detergents back to dreft. But I just thought it was Tide. But now that I read your note- I wonder- because I had been using Tide for 2 years with her clothes without an issue until the past few weeks....Hmmmm......

  • OP Here: I am going to switch to Dreft as well. My husband had to take a Benedryl last night because I had washed the sheets in Tide. His rash was so bad. We kind of dwindled everything down and the only thing left was the Tide. When we thought about it, we started asking around, only to discover several other people have had the same issue. I wonder what's up with Tide??

  • My DH & I both did, but it was about 2 years ago. I now make my own laundry detergent.
