Beauty Treatments and Allergies: What You Need to Know

When it comes to beauty treatments, people with allergies need to take special precautions. Allergies are an overreaction of the immune system to substances that would otherwise be harmless. Allergic reactions can manifest as red, itchy skin rashes or contact dermatitis. It is important to be aware of the risks before any treatment and to avoid the substances that cause allergies.

It is not always a new product that can cause an allergic reaction. Even cosmetic products such as soaps, lotions, face and eye makeup, fragrances, etc. can cause an allergic reaction. Allergies can affect people of any age and many people suffer from them.

Seasonal allergies caused by pollen from flowering plants or food allergies are common. If you think you have experienced an adverse effect after using a cosmetic product, you can file a report with the FDA. Additionally, if you have eczema, phototherapy (a prescription ultraviolet therapy treatment) may be an option for chronic and widespread eczema. Immunotherapy may also be effective for hay fever and allergic asthma.To prevent allergic reactions, read the product's ingredient panel carefully and avoid ingredients that you know or think you are allergic to.
