Hello Gentalmen, I am a newbie to threads but have a particular problem. I am breaking out and not sure if it is from our laundry soap in my clothes. I have been using talc to help with the itching. Dreft detergent is very pricy was looking for something easier on my budget. Something for my skin while bathing and after. Anyone with sensitive skin had a similar problem have any ideas what would help. Thanks!

Would suggest going back to whatever you were using before you started to "break out". You mention laundry soap, so perhaps that is it. Use the one before you started itching just to verify that that new brand of detergent is what really did it. Then go from there.

until my early adult life, I wasn't having a laundry detergent issue. then, it happened quickly in my late 20's, then, ever since. after that, I then started to have bath soap issues. sometimes sensitivity issues build over time. then it went on to having irritation with shaving related preps and frags. alot of what is sold as bath soap, is a "detergent" bar. many of the common/mainstream ones sold here make my hide feel itchy and pickled all day. Oh,...and while talc sounds like a good tactic,....talc makes me have something that looks like "prickly heat" after using it for more than 2 days in a row. so I gotta be watchful there, also. But it might not be the talc itself....could be the frag in it. My dermo-guy is the one who put me wise to chems and scents....he said that while there are alot of reliable tests for foodstuffs, plants, pollens, and such, there were very few to pinpoint chem sensitivity, because there are so many 10's of thousands of chems. frags and dyes are the worst offenders. now the search begins for what you can use, and what you should steer clear of. good luck.
