Lip Gloss Allergy Symptoms and Prevention

Lip Gloss Allergy

Symptoms of Lip Gloss Allergy:

Lip gloss can result in the following reaction:

  • Peeling of lips
  • Cracking of lips
  • Bleeding of lips
  • Swelling of lips

In rare cases, the allergy can also progress to breathlessness, dizziness and low blood pressure. If an individual experiences this, he/she should be immediately administered epinephrine to prevent the allergic reaction.

How to Prevent Lip Gloss Allergy?

Before trying out a new lip gloss, apply the gloss on a small area of your skin. If you observe skin irritation or redness, avoid using it for the lips. The skin reaction can be an indication of an allergy.

If you are already experiencing an allergy after using a particular lip gloss, immediately stop using that product. Switching to another product can be helpful in preventing the allergy.

Gloss allergy is caused due to the chemicals present in the product. As different products contain different chemicals, using another product may not cause an allergy.

Treatment of Lip Gloss Allergy:

Your doctor might prescribe you antihistamines or corticosteroids to treat the allergy. In case of a severe allergic reaction, the individual should be administered epinephrine immediately to prevent the progression of reaction.

Lip gloss can cause an allergy. So, if you experience a reaction after applying a product, stop using it or switch to another product. Consulting an allergist would also be helpful to prevent future allergy outbreaks.

  1. I enjoyed reading your blog & I must congratulate you.. this is a work of art!

  2. I have been using different types of lip gloss, and I like to apply them very much. About a months ago I bought one tube of Palmer’s Lip Butter, and apply it on my lips. After about 15 minitues my lips,started burning and suddenly they become swollen. Then I removed it, but continuously I felt they are burning and then the lips become red. On the next they they were dried up and become black and cracked. Even after three weeks my lips are cracked and driedup. upper lip become totally black and part of the lower lip same. I consulted a doctor and used medicine but unfortunately nothing is worked. I am frustrated now and I dont know what to do…..
