Try this who-dun-it scenario as if you worked for the Ms. Marple Detective Agency:
Ms. Norma asked to see the famous detective Ms. Marple. Ms. Norma’s husband gave her a jar of skin cream. Was her husband trying to do her in?
The case: The cream smelled nice and spread nicely. But 4 hours later her face and neck itched and burned. Ms. Norma washed it off and the itching went away. The next day Ms. Norma was back to her old self and went to see Ms. Marple.
Ms. Marple took the jar of cream and sent it to her cosmetic lab. The lab found the usual oils but no poison.
Having a deep understanding of allergies and immunity, Ms. Marple reviewed the timing. She thought of her experiences with allergies in her own family.
Her nephew has a peanut allergy. She has a special epinephrine syringe for this child. If none is available within minutes the child will have trouble breathing.
Her brother has a poison ivy allergy. He likes to photograph birds. When they vacation at the family estate her brother always returns from expeditions every 4 hours to bathe with the family lye soap. He knows that he must do this. If he does not, then the next day he will have blisters from his exposure to poison ivy.
Therefore she thought, the victim developed symptoms at 4 hours, not in minutes or the next day. So what happened to Ms. Norma did not sound like an allergic or an immune response.
As the day progressed, Ms. Marple advised the anxious Ms. Norma to attend the eczema clinic down the block. The world famous physician advised Ms. Norma to take dilute bleach baths or wash her skin extensively before applying creams. She could even use Ceela Naturals’ eczema atopic test kit. Ms. Norma chose Ceela’s test kit.
Ms. Norma Loses Lucrative Sequel Contract due to Ceela’s eczema atopic test kit.
By carefully cleansing her skin, Ms. Norma can use her cream gifted by her husband. Now she knows the real culprit: her Microbiome.
In summary, while a bit technical:1. Anaphylaxis or immediate hypersensitivity occurs in minutes2. Delayed type hypersensitivity takes 8-12 hours or more3. Bacteria can double in 6-8 minutes, many can eat skin oils. Consequently, symptoms occurring 30 min to 6 hours probably is due to the Microbiome.
Most itching and burning has a bacterial-fungal component.
You have to remove both the bacteria and food they like before you put on a cream. Here are the guidelines for applying a cream:
1. Clean your skin thoroughly before you apply any cream. Use something that can dissolve the dirt and grunge (new medical term) deep in the pores. Either Ceela Clean or Body Wash works wonderfully! 2. Apply Magicalm+ Mask for 1-2 min.3. Rinse thoroughly and dry your skin completely.4. Apply a cream like Just 3+.5. Apply a moist warm cloth after the cream to drive moisture into your skin. Ceela contains CLA which holds onto water once in the skin.
As always, please do a patch test on your forearm first.
