There will be the new writer for this blog.


After writing this Allergy Comfort Zone blog for the last 4 years, I am passing it over to  Erika Ladouceur who promises to keep it active and true to its beginnings. Erika lives in Canada so she might have a little different perspective on allergies.

I want to thank all the readers who follow Allergy Comfort Zone and all the many reader who have left comments. I may occasionally write a blog on one of my favorite subjects; skin allergies, contact dermatitis and eczema.

Thank you, have a healthy and happy holiday and new year.

New Year’s Resolution: Track down secondary reasons for skin irritation


I’m always very careful about what touches my skin because it is so very sensitive. I stay away from dyed clothing, especially disperse blue and red, synthetics, fabric coatings and wrinkle and fire-retardant finishes. I wash all new clothes three times before I wear them using special detergent without perfume, dye or coloring and rinse twice. In the shower I only use luke warm water with perfume free cleanser for sensitive skin (I like Dove sensitive) and towels without dyes or fabric softeners.

Now why would I still be having problems with my skin breaking out in rashes when I am so careful with all these things that I’m allergic to? Read about how I plan to work on this problem on my allergy blog…

Skin allergies most popular blog topic for me.


Even though I write on many other allergy topics like: seasonal allergies, food allergies and asthma allergy triggers, skin allergies is by far the  most popular topic on my blog. I guess it’s because there is so little personal and honest information available anywhere else. Many sites just try to sell you the product of the moment.

I have searched for many years and tried all sorts of so-called “cures” with little dramatic results. I am still searching for my own comfort zone as far as my skin allergies go. I will continue to write about my research and give you hints on valuable and useless information. What works and what doesn’t work for clearing up dermatitis and eczema. A few basic practices give me relief and a few basic products seem to work. I have written about all of this in my blogs this year.

Below are a few blogs on the Skin Allergy topic I have written about this year. All of these blogs can be found on my Allergy Comfort Zone Blog on the Skin Allergies Page: http://allergycomfortzone.com/skin-allergies.html

Today is a bad day for my contact dermat…


Today is a bad day for my contact dermatitis allergies. I wore all white clothing touching my skin today, yesterday and last night. I’ve used the same the perfume-free and dye-free products I always use. I never really know if there is another factor involved. Maybe it’s when I eat a certain food that causes me to be more sensitive to skin irritation. Then my skin comes in contact with something that’s never bothered me before. The combination of the two causes an allergic reaction I didn’t have yesterday. Any ideas?
