If you feel sick every time you wear your favourite woollen sweater, you may suffer from a wool allergy. People allergic to wool are actually allergic to the material or ingredient used in the garment-making process. There is a natural oil called lanolin in wool that may cause discomfort when wearing clothes made from the material.
Your risk for wool allergy also largely depends on your medical history, especially if you suffer from various allergies or asthma. Depending on your symptoms, your doctor may prescribe a wool allergy test.
At Apollo 24|7, you can purchase a wool allergy test to diagnose your symptoms and get immediate treatment for your condition.
You must get yourself tested if you face any of these symptoms:
Make sure to avoid creams, lotions, or moisturisers that contain lanolin. This natural oil is found in many cosmetics and may cause harmful reactions to your skin. When your symptoms get worse or do not subside after taking antihistamine medications, it is best to consult your doctor and find a treatment plan.
Though wool allergy has no permanent cure, treatment medications can help subside the symptoms and provide relief to an aggravated reflex action. Never take medicines without consulting your doctor. You may also prevent these symptoms from getting worse by avoiding taking hot showers that may further irritate the skin. Subsequently, avoid scratching your skin since it may cause the rashes to get worse.
