93 chemicals which cause dermatitis – check your shampoo!

The increase in the number of people with allergies, coeliac disease and food intolerances has seen a massive rise in the number of freefrom foods in the shops. Many of those who avoid certain foods have skin problems such as eczema if they do come into contact with that particular allergen. There are contact allergens too like grass, pollen, dust and animal dander.
