Reply To: Nummular dermatitis / eczema


Well, I had a lot of allergy testing done since my last post. I am allergic to avocados but not latex. Turns out I’m allergic to cloves, vanilla, avocados, and peanuts (as well as ragweed and dust). I also had “patch” testing too see if something is triggering the dermatitis. I was bummed to discover I reacted to something called “fragrance mix”. I thought I was reacting to a latex yoga mat, but turns out it was my essential oil cleaner I was using on it. could have just been the clove (I was making a cleaner with purify). I see the Allergist Monday to discuss the results and find out exactly what was in the fragrance mix. I’m not quite sure how this will impact my ability to use EO. 😥
