Health Tip: A Remedy for Perfume Allergy

Getting rid of it in a whisker

(HealthDayNews) -- For all you men who have a perfume or cologne allergy, here's a free, money-saving method to cure yourself:

Grow a beard!

According to the journal, Contact Dermatitis, many perfume allergies are the result of the allergens getting past the skin by way of tiny nicks and scrapes caused by shaving. The nicks and scrapes may be too small for the eye to see, but they offer plenty of room for a molecule.

Growing a beard can help you with the perfumes and colognes that other people wear. And, if you're allergic to the perfume in your own shaving cream, it will be 100 percent effective.
