{Allergies} Not So Sweet Almond Oil

by Leighann on November 20, 2012

I had no intentions of writing another allergy post this week, but as I was looking around online for allergen information I came across something that stunned me.

Cetaphil has sweet almond oil as an ingredient.


Here’s the thing: We’ve been slathering Q with Cetaphil for years to help with eczema. I’ve wondered if her eczema was contact dermatitis or an allergy to something. Turns out I’ve been trying to treat a possible allergy with something that could very well be causing her symptoms! (Or at least making them worse.)

Anyway, the allergist is curious to see if her eczema clears up when we go off of milk. Maybe just going off the Cetaphil will help.

On the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network website (FAAN), I downloaded “How To Read Labels” so that we can all be on the same page when it comes to sneaky milk and tree nuts who wish to find their way into our daughter’s system.

Just another reminder to read the ingredients list on all things used. All the other crazy ingredient worry me more than the almond oil. I thank God that allergies are not something I have to deal with though. I pray you find the source of the issue and can get it resolved soon.

It was hard to find a replacement that didn’t have parabens or other horrible ingredients. I ended up getting one in the baby aisle.
