Possible Allergy To Natural Ingredients Such As Aloe Vera?
Good morning, sorry I want to ask if someone can be allergic to natural ingredients such as aloe vera? Because every time my face is given anything that contains aloe vera in the ingredients, it will cause a breakout. I still don’t know if it’s purging or break out, which is sure to make me between panic and skepticism. So after 3-7 days of use I definitely stopped using it. Thank you in advance.

Allergy is a reaction of the immune system or the immune system to a substance that is considered dangerous, even though it is actually not dangerous. Allergy triggers only affect someone who is allergic to them. Some things that can trigger allergies include mites, dust, animal hair, insect bites, drugs that are taken orally applied to the skin, certain fluids, certain foods, certain drinks, and flower pollen.
When your body comes into contact with an allergen for the first time, the body will produce antibodies against that substance, because it is considered a dangerous substance, this does not cause allergic reactions or symptoms. However, when the body comes back into contact with the trigger substance, the body will increase the number of antibodies, then allergic reactions or symptoms occur. Symptoms of allergies that can arise include red eyes, watery eyes, sneezing, coughing, shortness of breath, runny nose, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, itching, redness, acne-like rashes, and swelling of the skin.
In your case, it can be stated that you may be allergic to aloe, even though it is natural, it may be suitable for use by other people, but not for you. When you use the product repeatedly, then the same symptoms occur, and it gets better when you don't use the product anymore, it can be stated that you are allergic to the substance.
We recommend that you do an allergy test, to determine your allergy triggers. Identify and avoid your allergens. When allergy symptoms occur, you can take over-the-counter antiallergic drugs.
Thus, hopefully this is useful.
