Well, unfortunately, I had to find out the hard way, I am allergic to shrimp. I break out in hives. Common sense tells me don't eat shrimp, and don't sue shrimp. lol. I'm kidding. If something causes a rash, I don't use it. If something makes my horse itch, I don't use it. Doubt I'd return the product, but instead save it for another horse. So yeah, this is the kinda stuff I don't want to deal with.
This sort of mentality is why we are becoming a nanny state. People cannot discern for themselves that there are risks, great or small as they may be. Personally, I would rather discern for myself if something has a good tract record based on reviews and case studies, while understanding that although it worked for many people, there is a fraction of a percent it may cause a rash.
This is why great companies like Vetericyn have to make their products so expensive. Vetericyn has had a lot of trouble with the FDA over labeling, claims, etc. which is a shame. They had to completely redo their website. It virtually has no information. Their product is great, and we use it to clean really nasty wounds, then go to saline. Of course, Vetericyn doesn't prevent or eliminate proud flesh, but I can't say enough good things about the product for cleaning. They've had to spend millions fighting regulation & protect themselves legally because someone might break out in a rash.
Personally, if I broke out in a rash, I'd quit using whatever caused the rash. lol Same with my horse.
I sincerely hope your hand is better. That looks painful! Also, I hope you don't sue the makers of the organic detangler, and just find something that works for you. Cowboy magic is great stuff. Super expensive, but again, they probably have to go to great lengths to legally protect themselves.
Golden, no sense beating a dead horse. I hear ya loud and clear, and again, this is why I no longer sell to the general public. Thanks for reaffirming the decision, and I hope you don't get anymore allergies. Thank goodness, so far in my 47 years, shrimp is the only thing I'm allergic too. :)
Oh, and if you'd like to know what caused it, an allergist is how you find out. They do an allergy test. That's how I found out all the sudden I'm allergic to shrimp. About 12 yrs ago I ate stir fry and broke out. I didn't demand the restaurant tell me what was in the stir fry. In fact I didn't even think of that. Instead I went to allergy dr. and they did the test on my back.
