Allergies in Thailand
First morning in Thailand, our friend wakes up with swollen eyes. It didn’t seem bad, so we went on our way. She felt fine, albeit a weird sensation in her eyes. However, after showering that evening, her eyes got really red. She made it for dinner but hurried to wash her face again when we got in to soothe the itchiness. Only after she was done, it finally clicked. She used a new brand of face wash cloths and was having an allergic reaction! She washed her face again with water and mild soap, took some allergy pills and went to bed. It had to be better in the morning, right?
Poor girl spent the entire night tossing and turning, cold compress on her eyes, unable to sleep. We took a picture of her in the morning and ran out to find a pharmacist to help. Many eye drops and pills later she was finally herself again! Whether you’re prone to allergies or not, during vacations is a really bad time to try new skin products!
