just wondering if anyone can help me out with resources on ratings of laundry soap, or ingredients to look at in terms of possible allergic reactions to laundry soap.
my 2 year old has had a bad rash for over a month. it started on her legs, she itched it raw, and then it became infected with strep bacteria. the bacterial infection has been taken care of, but the rash remains, red, bumpy and itchy, on her legs, knees, lower tummy and forearm. the doctor beleives this all started with an allergic skin reaction to a soap or baby type product in our environment. the only thing i can think of is i picked up a bottle of clorox green works laundry soap after running out of my regular laundry soap-whole foods 365 brand, and have been using it for about a month. my child is now on an antihistamine in hopes of taking care of the rash and i am trying to re-wash her clothes and towels and gave away the green works laundry soap.
i am wondering what i should be looking at for ingredients so i don't make this mistake again. the only reason i bought this green works product is i live over an hour away from whole foods, and needed something to tide me over until the next time i could get there. it was the best option for a 'green' product in our small town.
any one with experience or advice?
