Baby Wipes Generate Food Allergies

Most people who work with children wonder why there seem to be so many more allergies now than there were years ago. We generally assume it must be something in the environment. This study makes it specific. Baby wipes are a trigger for many allergies in children who are predisposed.

The factors contributing to food allergy include the genetics that alter skin absorbency, use of infant cleansing wipes that leave soap on the skin, skin exposure to allergens in dust and skin exposure to food from those providing infant care. Food allergy is triggered when these factors occur together.

Baby wipes are a thing that nobody had fifty years ago that now seem to be everywhere. And now allergies seem to be everywhere. They’re something we can do without.
