ANYONE ALLERGIC TO GLYCERIN?  HOW DID THEY TEST YOU FOR IT?  WENT FOR A FOOD ALLERGY TEST AND NOT ALLERGIC TO ANY OF THE 38 FOODS THEY TESTED ME FOR.  BUT I BROKE OUT IN A FLAMING HOT RED RASH ALL OVER.  SPREAD TO DIFFERENT PARTS OF MY BODY.  THE DR HAS NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE NOT FROM A FOOD TEST AND THOUGHT IT LOOKED LIKE A SYSTEMIC DRUG REACTION.  SHE THOUGHT I WAS ALLERGIC TO THE PERSERVATIVES IN THE FOOD ALLERGEY TEST.

It could be from a preservative in the glycerin. Sulfite preservatives are sometimes used during the processing of glycerin, and sometimes can cause a rash. Vitamin B12 counteracts sulfites (chemically binds directly to the sulfites) and will usually decrease or prevent an allergic reaction to sulfite preservatives. If it is not a sulfite allergy, however, then the Vitamin B12 won't do anything.

Also, have you been tested for Mastocytosis? This is a disorder that affects the skin and GI tract and has allergic-like symptoms and triggers. I think it is diagnosed by a biopsy (skin or GI tract), you might ask your doctor if this is a possibility.

Good luck,

If you are allergic to glycerin, you will have to read all ingredients you eat, brush your teeth with, shampoo and conditioner, soaps body and laundry, make up for women. shaving cream, lotions, mouth wash. If you are married, and your spouse uses glycerin, you may get an allergic reaction in mouth or other moist area, from your spouses fluids. This is from a person who is allergic to glycerin and has been for several years.
