Reaction To Band-aids?

Recommended Posts

My dad reacts to adhesives in bandaids and tapes, and we read that most of them are made with corn products. Maybe you're allergic to corn and wheat, sometimes

I think I react to most all grains, even in the air like if corn is grown in the area, or if I am in a bakery I get allergy type reactions. Maybe you could get skin tested for these grain foods? Good luck.

I use a hormone replacement patch and always have a red rash under it when I take it off, which takes a few days to go away. Fortunately I can move the placement around so at any one time I only have one rash and one patch, not in the same place.

You'd think the manufacturers could come up with a better adhesive for these products...
