Yesterday I washed my body with baking soda. I filled a large cup with about 3/4 a cup of baking soda, added a little bit of water and then rubbed the paste on my arms, legs and face. This morning I when I woke up I thought my full-body rash felt a whole lot better.
So, I decided to do it again. In the shower I am rubbing baking soda on and it feels pretty good. Then I decided maybe I would finish off with some soap so I smell good. All of a sudden the burning and itching started. I think it is the soap causing it.
The soap I currently have is new. I've only used it 3 times. I've had the rash now for several weeks. But my previous soap was also castile soap. My previous soap was coconut castile and my current one is olive oil castile.
I do not understand how someone could be allergic to so basic a product. Castile soap is usually recommended for people who are allergic to other soaps.
I will keep trying the baking soda and see if it really does help. And I'll see if not using the castile soap also helps.
