Recently and fairly suddenly I became allergic to all soap. Even hypoallergenic soap. It started with bar soaps and then moved on to liquid soaps and now even shampoo causes a reaction similar to hives. I don't get welts or dry skin, but I itch all over and no lotion (including hypoallergenic ones) will sooth my skin. I can still wash my hands and face without this reaction. If I wash anywhere else I end up in the uncomfortable state I have mentioned for hours and sometimes an entire day. Please help me, I don't want to have to decide between being dirty and being so itchy I can barely function. Thank you
Yes I suppose I was, but I have definitely tried both soaps and detergents and it still happens. I am starting to think it is a stress related allergy, my body started reacting differently to everything and I have been very stressed.
