Finished my 3 weeks at work yesterday! And this past week they demanded we start disinfecting the office, pens, walkie's, chairs, keyboards, ect with Clorox wipes. Fine. Whatever. Did so. Came home from work wednseday really itchy. Put hydrocortizone cream on everything itchy. Thursday, used the wipes less and opt'd for purell instead as much as possible, took a shower when I got home. Friday, looked at the clorox wipes container - contains "FRESH SCENT". farking A no wonder I'm itchy as hell. I'm allergic to that "scent" BS they put in everything. Only touched 1 wipe at the end of the day to disinfect my walkie and used purell (which is the foaming kind and have used during other work stints and was fine). I've also had to take allergy pills each day.
Woke up this morning, saturday, and with itchy arms. Looked. I HAVE LITTLE RED DOTS ALLLLL OVER MY ARMS. looks like a mosquito or flea made out on my arms. Slathered my skin with hydrocortizone cream and took another allergy pill and washed my clothes
sooooo itchyyyy urgghhhhhh
oh and i washed my arms really good with our soap in cold water since hot water makes the antihistamines react more and spreads the itch for me. i still feel like i need to dunk my right arm in cold water.
