I was diagnosed with a PG allergy last April after suffering with dermatitis for 10 mos. I basically know how to get PG out of my life through food ,medicines and cleaning supplies, but I'm having trouble with it "out in the world". I work part-time in a school environment where wipes and handsanitizer are used extensively. The fumes from these cleaners makes my skin erupt. I have also had reactions to exposures at doctors' offices, the grocery store and shaking someone's hand. I have taken to wearing cotton gloves to work and disposable gloves at the grocery store. I am very concerned about getting clear, so I can get off the daily steroid ointment (desonide). Does anyone know how long PG fumes and residue last? For example, are cleaning wipes only bad until the area dries or are surfaces wiped with them able to contaminate until the PG is wiped off?View Thread
On Monday night at about midnight I woke up to a huge outbreak of hives all the way down the right side of my body. Alarmed I went to the ER. The doctor said they were common hives and told me take benadryl.
Day 1 I had a small out break in the afternoon but nothing at night. not to bad (definitely not like day 1)
Day 2 went all day with no signs and the last time I had medicine was the night before, but at night I had an outbreak again and took the medicine (again not as bad as day 1 but a little bit worse then day 2)
Day 3 again went all day with no outbreak at night they started popping up again but not as bad as day 1, and 2.
How do I know if its all related to day 1 outbreak or if I'm getting affected to something else.
IF they went away with the benadryl and reappeared does that mean its a new case?View Thread
