Calendula allergy

Calendula allergy

Postby EmL » Sun Dec 04, 2011 3:51 am

I've been really puzzled as to why my eczema was not going away, even when I used steriod creams.

Turns out that I was applying some Nivia cream with Calendula oil in it, I was using Calendula gel on the side, and even bought some organic e-cream with Calendula salve as a key ingredient.

Calendula is known for healing and it felt great on my skin temporarily, but once my body absorbed it, I think that it started to react.

You see, I have terrible seasonal hay fever. I'm very allergic to ragweed -- calendula is part of the same family of plants. Therefore, be careful using "healthy" and "organic" products with this extract in it. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

eating and drinking is a HUGE faoctr and the daily recommended amount of water a day is 2-3 bottles. definitely try to eat fruits and veggies to replace the bad food you'd usually have. exercise at least once a week for about an hour. this will really affect the way your skin looks. vitamin a, c, and e really help your skin look fresh and make sure you moisturize your face. getting a good amount of sleep always contributes too.your body need to be taken care of like a puppy lol
