Does anyone else seem to have a reaction to certain shower gels?

Anytime I seem to use them, whether it be Lynx, Imperial leather, Radox.. I come out in spots and they are very large and sore.

I saw my GP about this and he just gave me cream for the spots.

Is there a certain ingredient in shower gel that causes skin problems?

CluelessBloke...I share your problem, I have given up on shower gels and I just use Cetaphil now, I think it is available at Boots.

I don't think you get enough exfoliation with those shower gels to prevent spots. Unless you are using a loofah or drybrushing before the shower.

An antibacterial soap like Dial works for my DH in the shower.

So is it a good idea to use some sort of exfoliation before showering?

Thanks Kits kid, I'll keep my eye put for that and let you know how I get on.
