5 Natural Preventive Measures to Prevent Allergic Reaction to Wool

Allergic Reactions to Wool can be prevented by the following prevention strategies. 

1. Avoid Contact with Wool 

Firstly avoid wearing woollen fabrics, I know you can’t avoid them in winter. Chilling winters and warm clothes are all we need. Cotton flannel, polyester and other fabrics are good substitutes for woollen clothes to keep yourself warm in winter. 

2. Soft Fabric Over Coarse

Choose winter wear made of soft and thin fabrics rather than coarse and thick fabrics. Because thick and coarse fabrics are more allergic than soft and are harsh on the skin. So, always prefer woollen wear made of soft woollen fabrics to Prevent Wool Allergy.  

3. Apply Moisturiser 

Keep this in mind, winter can lead to rough and dry skin. Dry skin always gets irritated and rashes are common. So it’s better to keep the skin moist with herbal moisturisers which are gentle on the skin and hydrate your skin for a longer time. And moisturiser helps in keeping the skin humid and warm and reacts less with the woollen fabric.

4. Layer it with other Fabric Helps to Prevent Wool Allergy

If you find your woollen sweater is irritating you, then it’s always best to layer it with any breathable cotton fabric. Cotton helps your skin to feel comfortable,  breathable and less irritable. 

5. Look for Labels 

Next time, when you’re buying any woollen wear, make sure you read the labels and avoid those winter wear which have synthetic dyes, colourants or any allergic agents used to make them. Always go for natural and soft woollen wear.
