I am going crazy or I am already there!! I have suffered for about a year and a half with a bad rash on my eye lids and lips and couldn't figure it out. I saw my doctor, took different types of meds including cortisone cream, this never really took it away. Then I saw a derm doc. he said anti depressant meds would take away this type of rash,(It didn't work) well now I was really depressed since I just knew it probably had something to do with allergies. Any way a few months ago I read in a question to the dermatologist in the allergic living mag. spring 2007 about a reaction to shampoo...? wow ding ding ding thats it!! I have also discovered that the soap I was using also contains coconut. With it not saying it in plain words like (coconut) I dropped the ball and did not know that cocoamidopropyl betaine was coconut. The only thing now is that when I call the companys to find out if the shampoo or soap has coconut the person on the phone does not seem to know their self. I am having trouble finding soap and shampoo that does not have any nut, tree nut (shea), or coconut in it. I feel that different allergy items are easer to deal with than others. Peanut, tree nut, and shell fish are more common so those with out allergies seem to "get" them a bit more. I am so frustrated with this not to mention no makeup for me!!
