    allergic reaction to Lubriderm Lotion?
    interiorvues posted:
    I attended a training session this weekend and over the course of two days after visiting the bathroom and washing my hands, I used the Lubriderm lotion they had there to avoid my hands drying out. By the end of the day my hands (esp. the tops) were itching horribly and it continued on into the night disturbing my sleep. I used some hydrocortisone and that seemed to help some but I still have the slight itchy, even burning sensation under the skin. It HAS to be the lotion. What can help and what is it exactly in the lotion that I could be having a reaction to?

    That would be odd. Lubriderm is supposed to be very safe as far as allergies go. Could it have been the soap in the bathroom instead? Just a thought.

    I would keep up the hydrocortisone for a few days. I would avoid Eucerin lotions as some of them have alpha hydroxy in them and may cause further irritation. What about Curell? Amlactin is dermatologist recommended, but it does have lactic acid in it which may be problematic as well.

    You can ask your pharmacist for recommendations as well.

    Have a blessed New Year.
