Gold Sodium Thiosulfate Allergy

Allergy to Gold Sodium Thiosulfate might sound a little weird and leave you wondering what exactly is it. It’s exactly what you think, but hate to hear. It’s allergy to gold. All types of Gold. Gold Jewelry. Devastating, right? I know it is. I’ve actually been diagnosed with this allergic contact dermatitis allergy since 2006 and have just now resolved myself to… I can’t wear my beautiful gold jewelry any longer. I’m actually in the process of packing it away in hopes that my beautiful daughter Lilly will one day enjoy it.

Laundry! Lots and Lots of Laundry!


I get questions all the time about my laundry. What’s best? What cleans best? You really don’t use fabric softener??? I get it. Most have been doing their laundry with the same detergents their parents used! Changing this seems daunting and confusing. When I was first diagnosed with allergic contact dermatitis in 2006, I swore off laundry and had my husband do it for about 6 months. We only had two children at the time so it was a lot easier to keep up with then for him. Folding laundry had always caused my hands to itch, but I really didn’t understand why. We switched to a sensitive-skin fabric softener and an allergy-friendly (or so we thought) liquid detergent. Fast forward to my big reaction of 2018 and subsequently I learned a lot more about my allergies and how to live a reaction-free life. These discoveries have been life-changing for me and for my family. It’s what inspired me to write this blog to help others on their path to living reaction-free.
