Household Items and Food Allergies

Posted on May 25, 2018

Sometimes our allergies expand beyond food. Common household items may begin to cause irritation or an allergic reaction. Irritants can be found in cleaning, beauty, automotive, or laundry products. Finding these triggers and avoiding them can be difficult.

On MyFoodAllergyTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with food allergies, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Reactions to household items are one of the most discussed subjects.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about household items:

I have severe reactions to perfume, deodorants, detergents, cleaning materials, damp paper etc. Any advice?

How do I get rid of leather cleaner smell from my car recently purchased?

Does anyone have recommendations for sunscreen?

Does anyone have advice how to help others understand how severe an allergy can be!?

Have you found soy-free and gluten-free products makeup skincare?

Can you relate?
