    Can potassium permanganate be used to treat skin allergy?

    I have recurring skin allergy problems. But some sources say potassium permanganate baths are not recommended for ppl with dry skin. I have dry skin condition. Have tried steroid creams, it helps but doesn't take away the problem.

    In order to understand what can stop your allergy, you have to understand what an allergy is. In layman's terms you immune system is over-reacting. This sounds like a typical class I hypersensitivity reaction, antibodies/immunoglobulins which correspond to a certain antigen have been created by plasma cells and are freely circulating in the body, when the body is exposed to the antigen, an immune reaction is mounted (despite how insignificant the substance may be). This can be anything from the soap you use, shampoo, linen, clothes, food, washing detergent, jewellary. Hope this helps!

    Something you might want to read about that i forgot to mention is the use of hookworms. This parasite is voluntarily introduced into the body (10 worms or so are placed onto a plaster) the hookworms burrow into the skin, where they release chemicals to suppress the immune system so they are not killed. It has been known to cure asthma and other hypersensitivity reactions. Albeit a slightly gruesome way of tackling it!

    The skin disorders caused due to the excess use of cosmetics are called skin allergies. The skin reacts to contact with a substance known as allergen, becomes red and itchy.
    Use fragrance free products when suffering from allergies of skin. Fragrances in shampoos, body lotions etc can cause a fierce reaction and possible inflammation of the skin.

    Aw I'm sorry newnothing and ryxin,
    Allergic reactions (HIVES) are the worst! I've had it three times my life time (I know few friends who have it come back frequently for most of their lifetime) and have done a lot of amateur google research on this when I had them (it drived me nuts!). For ryxin, I've heard that many times where their medications never works. Do you know what he is allergic to? The problem (from what I know) with allergies is that it is hard to find what one is allergic to sometimes. There can be some tests done at the hospital but sometimes the allergen is not found.

    I'm sure you've heard of anti-histamines before. These are the most common medications since histamines play a big role on creating those hives. (But a fair warning, sometimes this does not work to well for some).

    Above all, make sure to ask a specialist also. (If you can)

    Get to a dermatologist. If that guy cannot help, try a second dermatologist. If you get no luck after the second opinion, it is probably hopeless at this point.

    Do NOT go chasing quacks. That is a sure fire way to get scammed and lose lots of $$$ for no positive results.

The problem as far as I know with allergies is that it is difficult to find what you are allergic to, sometimes. There may be tests done in hospital, but sometimes the allergen is not found.

    Sometimes skin allergies are caused, if not aggravated, by dust. A simple scratch or rubbing will surely lead to multiplication of rashes and bumps. Also, keep your son from eating allergenic food.
