Shea Butter allergic reation
Hi everyone! I am new here to this site. My daughter is 4 yrs. old with asthma and a p.a. About a week ago I bought and started using the Johnson&Johnson shea butter baby bath and lotion and within a week, she broke out with a hivey type rash under her arm and it progressively got worse and spread to the rest of her body. Luckily I was at her allergist on Mon. with my other daughter, who has no allergies and she took a look at the hives. I told her about the shea butter baby bath. (It was the only thing different that I had used. I tend to stick to the same soaps and detergents b/c my peanut allergy daughter's skin is very sensitive.) She said it was most likely from the shea butter. Now that I have read a little bit about it I found out it is derived from a nut tree in Africa. Although she tested neg. to tree nuts, I am confused as to why she would have reacted to this product. Has anyone else had any problems with allergic reactions to shea butter??
