Palmcoconut allergies

PreviousPage 2 of 2

Hey everyone if you are looking for a safe body soap that is palm oil and coconut free try the Olive oil soap from kiss my face co. I have started using this and have been breakout free. I also have found that Dove shampoos cause little to no breakouts. As far as foods watch out for generic brands they are loaded with coconut and palm oil derivatives because it is cheaper to use. The safest lip balm I have found is the Chap-stick brand cherry or strawberry. Foods are touch and go still have to read every ingredient. Also be careful as the allergy persists exposure to someone even eating coconut laced products can sometimes cause allergy flare ups especially in respiratory tract also let your any health care professional know because a lot of the soaps and hand lotions they use to keep their hands clean contain coconut and palm oil products buts also some medications do as well now.Hope this helps

My daughter is 12, almost 13. She has an anaphylactic food allergy to coconut. She has several other allergies but they seem to be manageable at this time. I have done so much research on her allergy. Its not a very popular allergy but is very dangerous to her. If you would like anymore information please let me know.

My 10 yr old daughter used someone elses hand sanitizer and had a skin reaction to it. Turns out it had ""Tahitian Palm Milk"" in it. Is this just a fancy way to sell an unpopular ingredient? Are people with topical allergies automatically assumed to have related food allergies as well? I should mention that she has had excema and itchies off and on in her life, and commercial frostings make her feel ill.

Im 51, I started having problems with allergies to nuts at Xmas in my teens. I never knew the canker sores were caused by the allergy to the nuts. When I was pregnant, no problem with the nuts, but was allergic to peanut oil. After the birth, everything seem okay. Then 5 years ago, I found Palm oil allergy, canker sores within 20 minutes of eating, swollen tongue and throat. I avoided anything with palm, which is 99% of products in the stores. Last 4 years the allergy has increased to include all palm, sesame, peanut, almond, soy, and some canola oils. Also finding eating bacon causing an reaction. I now never eat anything Im offered made by someone else. I bake/make 95% of my food from scratch. I keep an antahistimine (liquid) available, to avoid hospital after reaction, works quick to take swelling down. I do have an EPIPEN. The worse reactions are to sesame oil, the swelling comes up so fast, feels like i have straws to my nose. I have asked the Dr before for tests, said wouldnt help much, but going to insist. The items Im allergic to seems to be increasing. I do great when just eating my own food. Im glad Im not alone, just sad that seems there are alot of people out there with it, and nothing to help. If you ever saw the movie ""Hitch"" with Will Smith when he drinking the antahistamine in the drug store after a reaction, I to have done that. Funnier on film than experiencing the real thing. If anyone has an input for help or where to go for testing/herbalists, please let me know. I live in Canada - Alberta.
