Weird Reaction to Baby Oil with Mineral Oil???

Posted by on Jan. 25, 2009 at 6:40 PM

I enjoy an oil bath a couple of times a week. When I was younger, it always seems Regular Baby Oil made me itch... so for the past several years I have used Burt's Bee's Oil that does NOT have mineral oil in it... well, the economy being what it is... I bought cheap baby oil again and OMG... I have itches and hives behind my knees and elbows and under my armpits... I used it several days ago but the under arm hives are getting worse...

Has this happened to anyone else or am I just a freak????

I havent heard of it happening to anyone. I would get some cortizone and get it on that rash ASAP.

I am very allergic to baby oil and I mean my skin gets raw my son is the same way. Try putting corn starch all over your body for a few days it will dry it up and start to clear. The same corn starch used for cooking not the baby powder one the perfume will make it worse! This works great with diaper rash to or heat rash on kids and adults.
