Can skin cream cause headaches??
Posted 18 June 2008 - 10:59 AM
I used it around my brows and a litte under them and for the last 2 and a half days I have had a headache I hadn't been able to get rid of.
I don't know if it was a coincidence but when I thought maybe the cream was to blame (after chomping waaayyy too many Tylenol over the course of 2 days) I wiped it off and after about 3 hours it felt like the pain was less intense and now severl hours later, it seems to be gone.
I don't know it it was the cream or just some random but ill-timed sinus headache (or possibly migraine, but my migraines usually cause my face and arm to go numb and have a blind spot in my vision- I didn't have any of that.); has anyone experienced this with any products?

It's that firming stuff from Olay's Regenerist line. I think I may have had it too close to my eyes, even though it says it can be used on the brow.
I've just never had a headache that lasted that long- not even a migraine and my migraines resemble a stroke!!!
Oh well. If I had a reaction or not, I won't use it again, just in case.

|talk about bad luck ! was the firming agent too... firming ? or just too close to your brows ?|
Like I said, I dodn't know what it was or if it even did cause the headache; I just know I had a whopper of a headache while I had the stuff on and it went away after I washed it off and kept it off although I was pretty weak and shakey for a day or so afterward.
I notice as I get older I get more and more sensitive to things I never had a problem with before so my first thought whenever I feel "weird" is that something caused the problem, lol!

Absolutely they can cause headaches...as can many cosmetics. I have been suffering with this for years and spent so much money on skin creams, eyeliners, mascaras & eye shadows....I know I am allergic to talc & parabens...but apparently there are many other chemicals that I am allergic to. I don't break out in a rash but instead get these violent or strong nagging headaches that don't go away until I take 800 mil. advil or go wash everything off my face. With some products my eyes get very puffy and my sinuses get stuffy....it is awful and an ongoing problem as I search for eyeliner, mascara & moisturizers I can use. I already know I cannot wear powdered shadow...only cream and it can't be the kind that turns into powder as it has talc in it. Also many plant based products cause me problems too as I cannot wear anything with any fragrance in it. It cannot be "Unscented" either....It MUST be Fragrance FREE. What a pain in the head this is!!!!

I've never heard of headaches from a skin cream, but being ridonkulously sensitive to many skin care products and makeup, I can at least sympathize. There could be something in it you're allergic to, which could very well cause headaches. We absorb things through our skin; it sounds to me like it could be possible.
