Allergy sufferer here, got allergies I my 30's. Gradually became sensitive to everything around me. Cats, yeast, grasses...etc.
Recently I used a spray tan in a can which is aerosol. I developed a mass amount of mosquito like welts on my arms, from my shoulders to my wrists. It was very itchy and burned like fire. (There's a chemical Called DHA in most self tanners) -Which I thought was the cause after doing research.
After that went away, a week later I used the new aerosol skin lotion from Vaseline. Well, the same thing happened only it was worse. Can A person be allergic to the propellant in Aerosol cans?
