I'm allergic to both Glycerin and Lanolin (which makes lotion and soap buying a pain, believe me) the best lotions I've found thus far are Vanicream- which doesn't have shelf rights but if you ask most pharmacies have it behind the counter, and you can buy it online, but beware the sunscreen does have either glycerin, or lanolin I forget which. I also love Miracle hand repair/foot repair http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?SKU=12876807&RN=1137&. The shower gel/bubble bath at bath and body works is safe and smells good to boot, but no other products are free of glycerin and lanolin.
My biggest advice is to become a good scanner, I check everything and I stick with a brand I like, once I find one that's safe, until they change the formula. Whenever anything changes about
the bottle, double check the ingredients again, I've lost a lot of favorite products over the years.
p.s my favies for shampoo and conditioner are aussie and tresseme... Crest vibrant white toothpaste is safe. and Check Everything!! vitamins, food, neosporin-type ointments. I had my throat close a week ago (ironically during emt training) because of vitamins I was taking because I was sick, so I've learned the hard way to be careful.
and as a note to everyone, if your allergy is bad, get an alert
bracelet. There are many products that emt's may use on you in a situation where you are unconcious that could kill you. they wouldn't have any idea why you were crashing and it would be disastrous.
