I've been trying to potty train my 2yo daughter for the past week, and we've had very little success. But she's breaking out into a horrible rash. All I can think of that's changed (same food, same everything) is that I've been washing her poopy underwear in OxiClean. Can you be allergic to that?
I'm going ahead and washing all her undies twice in the same detergent I always used for her diapers, just to be on the safe side. Am I crazy to think that she might be allergic to the OxiClean?

If that is the only thing that has changed then most likely you are right. Are you wiping her off with the same wipes you used before? If that has changed it could be the wipes too. It could be a higher concentrate of cleaners on her undies or maybe she is allergic to her underwear, just a thought.

It was the OxiClean. After realizing that she's not going to be PT'd (I was hopeful, but it's just not clicking for her), I put her back in the CDs and stopped using OxiClean. That was on Wednesday, and her rash is almost completely gone now. So, that's what it was. Weird. I would've never thought it. But what do I know? :lol:

Yes, it's very possible. My dh's family has bad skin allergies to certain detergents, additives, etc. My parents bought dh a shirt one time that he couldn't wear until I had washed it about 6 times to get whatever it was out of it that made him break out in a rash all over his chest and back. I recently changed fabric softeners and he's had a reaction to that. My brother-in-law can only use about 2 different detergents, the rest he's allergic to. So, it's definitely a possibility that your dd is allergic.

I have started using natural detergents after researching a lot about hormones and our bodies try to use everthing that is absorbed as God intended. Only now our body is absorbing all sorts of chemicals. Instead of grasping and using nutrients out of our blood stream to feel our cells, the chemical take the nutrients place after they kill them. So it messes with our bodies and hormones. Our body actually recognizes chlorine as estrogen.
No Wonder women have so many problems with their hormones.
JUST FOOD FOR THOUGHT
