Thread Name: BS: Lingering Head Cold...
Subject: RE: BS: Lingering Head Cold...
Too many of the commercial washroom dispenser and general consumer bar soaps have the sodium lauryl sulfate type (there is a group of related products) foaming ingredient and those are what make my hands break out (a coconut allergy - contact dermatitis). The hand sanitizer works better (though I often use a towel to dry any extra rather than letting it evaporate in place.)

The social distancing of COVID has been a great way to help avoid colds. I have enough trouble with pollen allergies during the year, I don't need extra sources of congestion.

Scroll down at that link to find the list of things to avoid if it's a problem.
