Re: Thank you and goodbye, cured (enough to be happy). A must read for all sufferers.
I've recalled 2 instances where I've had skin reactions being around SLS
products. (1) Last summer I was working with Varnish in the morning and 5 hours later my dad asked me what I had been doing out in the sun all day because my face was so red. I hadn't been in the sun at all. (2) A few months before I got EC I was working in a machinery with a machine called a tumbler. Basically it's just a machine with small rocks and a lot of soapy water that I had my hands and arms in throughout most days. I got a rash/reaction all up and down my hands/arms so bad the President of the company who pretty much never talked to me stopped by to check it out.
Anyway, after reading some posts here, I thought maybe there's a connection and have gone this route. For 5 weeks I've been on all natural toothpaste, soap, shaving cream, and laundry detergent while going to a natural bristle toothbrush. I will be switching to an all natural deodorant next week. I use pure vitamin e oil on the lips at night and a couple times throughout the day. I use blistex medicated lip ointment when I go out. I'm taking a multivitamin and fish oil daily and have done 6-7 Liver Flushes
over the past 6-7 months. Unfortunately, I have experienced no noticeable progress. How long did it take before you started noticing any progress at all?
