For years, I used plain baby oil to pat onto my skin before drying off after a shower. All of a sudden I have developed a severe allergy to anything containing mineral oil. I put baby oil on my forearms as I was getting out of the shower last week and have a horrid rash all up and down both arms, just like a poison ivy rash. It happened one other time, but I thought it was just a coincidence, but this time it's a real deal.
Who would guess anyone could be allergic to something as gentle as baby oil ?
