Trying not to scratch myself into a coma

Guess who has hives again. Yep, it's me. At least the good news out of it is that now I know exactly how I got them the first time. Banana Boat Baby. Do not buy this product if you or your child has sensitive skin and DO NOT put it on your baby. It's what gave me hives.
In fact I think it's the tool of the devil. I have a rash all over my arms, on my ears and neck and that's where I put it on the other day to go jogging. Luckily I didn't put any on my face this time because my regular moisturizer already has SPF15. And I do remember using that same sunscreen the day before my last allergic reaction. So the face is ok but the arms look like pink sandpaper. Nice.

Ugh. UGH. So sorry babe

I'm glad you found out what did it. A particular brand of suncreen should be easy to avoid.

I HATE when you do something to be safe and it ends up biting you in the behind. I am really sensitive to certain sunscreens too- I seem to be o.k. with all of the spray-on varieties, but then I look like an oil slick.
No fun.
Hope you feel better, toots.

Stop scratching!

Ugh! I have a bottle of that here! I'll throw it away!

When I had shingles, I put aloe vera on it to get rid of the itching. Perhaps that would help your hives, too.

I agree with Chani, aloe seems to help.

May the manufacturers rot in hives
