Zinc & Castor Oil Cream
I have been well, except every night when I go to bed I start to feel huffy and think, what is it about my bed!
Today I read on the internet that some Zinc & Castor Oil creams contain peanut oil. I rang the chemist (it was faster than walking home and looking at the container) and sure enough it does. I have been using the cream each night on cracks on my feet and even on my dry lips - so maybe if I stop that I'll feel even better.
Has anyone else had any experience with Zinc & Castor Oil cream - or any other creams lotions. Please tell me.
What else is there that I don't know about!
As you said Adele
"I don't know if it gets easier or if we just get used to it."
I am still getting used to it. I also read that Pears soap may contain peanut oil also.
Cheers! I found that Bluebird crispy chips are peanut free! And I'm enjoying them!!
Everyone is being REALLY GOOD with my food and I haven't had any further reactions except last week on Tues & Wed I wasn't feeling good at all.
Found out that on Tues they roasted peanuts in the kitchen and on Wed morning ground the peanuts, made peanut butter and then peanut butter sandwiches (which I didn't eat), but it seems just the airborne particles is enough to set me off! So, they are going to let me know when roasting or grinding peanuts and I won't go in the kitchen.
