Cosmetic Allergies Directory

Cosmetic allergies include allergic reactions to makeup, conditioners, shampoos, deodorants, moisturizers, perfumes, and more. If they cause a reaction when they touch the skin, the condition is called contact dermatitis. Symptoms of a reaction include itching, swelling, and redness. Cosmetic allergies can be avoided by not using the products that cause the reaction. However, if a reaction does occur, OTC ointments can usually ease the symptoms.
