The top 10 allergens (and how to avoid exposure) …

Tixocortol pixilate is a steroid present in creams like hydrocortisone acetate. Usually this sensitivity comes across as a failure in treating a rash..or the rash gets worse.
Propylene glycol, benzalkonium chloride, and neomycin are frequently found in topical creams.
Lanolin (also known as wool alcohol) is often found in emollients, medications and some personal care products.
Methylchloroisothiazolinone may be found in wet wipes and some sensitive skin products.
If you feel like you get a reaction, check the ingredients of your products. If you do not have a clinical improvement after 8 weeks, I’d consider testing by a specialist.
