Baby Wipes Causing Itchy, Scaly Rashes in Some Babies

I've known for a long time that the chemicals in so many consumable products can be irritating and even dangerous.  

Consumers just assume that if it's on the grocery store shelf it must be safe. Not So!! Be informed!!

Baby wipes may cause some kids to develop itchy, scaly, red rashes, a new study shows.
Until now, there haven’t been any reports of allergic reactions to moist wipes in kids in the United States, researchers noted in the study published Monday in Pediatrics. But that may be because reactions have been mistaken for other conditions, such as eczema, impetigo, and psoriasis.

“I think it may be more common than people realize,” said study coauthor Dr. Mary Wu Chang, an associate professor of dermatology and pediatrics at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine.
Chang reported on six children who had developed mysterious rashes and came to the UConn Health Center for help.
The first, an 8-year-old girl, showed up with an angry red rash around her mouth and on her buttocks. She had initially been treated with antibiotics and steroids. Each time she was treated she improved somewhat, but the rash always came back.
