We use All Free & Clear and the grandparents are required to use it too. Visitors who don't use All F&C get one of our shirts to wear when they visit. That's the omly way we've found to prevent an eczema breakout.

I just checked my Cheer detergent and it is made by P&G. Any info on it? I think I'm going to take P&G off the list altogether. Also, while I was in the laundry room I came across Magic Sizing fabric finish - it says in the ingredients, fragrance. Never thought about starches either, but I wonder if it could be in it? Planning to check on that.

My son too was breaking out in an itchy rash whenever he "hit the pillow" at night. I also use All Free & Clear detergent. We had further allergy testing and found that he was highly allergic to dust mites!!! Scored 5 out of 6 on the RAST. Ever since I went to the store and bought allergy pillows, allergy covers for the pillows and encased the mattress in an allergen free cover - and of course, wash his linens 2x per week... no problems.
The allergist also added that he is very allergic to multiple tree pollens - and being the "all boy" that he is... he also had been hanging, climbing and playing in and around the trees in our neighborhood more. I refuse to make him feel like he should be in a big plastic bubble! But I will do whatever I can to help reduce the symptoms, like the bedding solutions.

My son also had itchy rashes (not every day). Is your child also allergic to any other environmental stuff or foods that you know of? Ann

Hi. I'm new to the BB and was just cruising old messages. I was concerned about the Proctor & Gamble products because we use a lot of them and my daughter has peanut allergy and eczema. I phoned P&G to ask about other products, and the customer rep informed me that the company has removed all peanut oil from all laundry related fragrance products. This was completed bt July 2002. So, if you have any old bottles of Downey Wrinkle Releaser, throw it away. But all stuff on the shelves should be safe by now. They are researching if Pampers wipes have peanut oil in them, they've never been posed the question. I'll write back once I hear from them.
And by the way, Lever Bros would not tell me if peanut oil is used in the Surf detergents, siting it's proprietory information.
Great website!

I re-read the first page, didn't go to pages two and three so don't know what the final outcome was, if any, but simply re-raising for Kim canada to compliment the Oil of Olay thread. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I'm just beginning to look into soap products - I've never worried about them much before, but now I am, after reading some of these topics.
I would like to know which soap products people in Canada and the USA have found to be safe. My son is PA and TN allergic, also soy. At present we use Tide soap liquid, unscented, usually a no-name brand fabric softener, Lever 2000 soap, Head and Shoulders shampoo, Kirkland Shampoo (Costco's own brand) and Dippity Doo Gel. Any comments?
