Coppertone Pruritus Causes and Reviews
What is itching?
Itching is an irritating sensation that makes you want to scratch your skin. Sometimes it can feel like pain, but it is different. Often, you feel itchy in one area in your body, but sometimes you may feel itching all over. Along with the itching, you may also have a rash or hives.What causes itching?
Itching is a symptom of many health conditions. Some common causes are
- Allergic reactions to food, insect bites, pollen, and medicines
- Skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and dry skin
- Irritating chemicals, cosmetics, and other substances
- Parasites such as pinworms, scabies, head and body lice
- Liver, kidney, or thyroid diseases
- Certain cancers or cancer treatments
- Diseases that can affect the nervous system, such as diabetes and shingles
Most itching is not serious. To feel better, you could try
- Applying cold compresses
- Using moisturizing lotions
- Taking lukewarm or oatmeal baths
- Using over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream or antihistamines
- Avoiding scratching, wearing irritating fabrics, and exposure to high heat and humidity
Contact your health care provider if your itching is severe, does not go away after a few weeks, or does not have an apparent cause. You may need other treatments, such as medicines or light therapy. If you have an underlying disease that is causing the itching, treating that disease may help.
Coppertone Pruritus Reviews

I am a seventy-three year old male. My wife and I are retired and consider ourselves very fortunate to be able to leave the cold, winter climate of New England to live, for a few months each year, in sunny Florida. In November of 2011I awoke one morning with, what was later diagnosed by my doctor, a severe case of vertigo. The dizziness stayed with me, in one degree or another, for several months.
As I had not experienced these symptoms before, I began to wonder if I had been eating or using something while in Florida that I had not been consuming back in New England. I finally concluded that my diet was pretty much the same, but one day while preparing for a trip to the beach (my wife and I consider ourselves "beach bums"), and while I was applying my daily coat of Coppertone Suntan lotion, I realized that this was something that I had been doing daily since arriving in Florida but did not do at all back home. My curiosity got the best of my, and I began an Internet search.
It was during this search that I came across some information thar indicated that Coppertone could, though rare, cause dizziness in some users. I stopped the use of Coppertone immediately, and with time, the symptoms of vertigo lessened and eventually disappeared completely.
When we returned to Florida the following October (2012), my experience, whether real or imagined, was still fresh in my mind, and I purposely avoided the use of Coppertone. Throughout our 2012-2013 Florida stay, I experienced no signs of dizziness. When we returned in October and November 2013, I continued this practice.
Each year we return to New England to spend the holidays with our children and grandchildren, returning tp Florida just after the first of January.
For some unexplained reason, I never disposed of the Coppertone products, and when we got back here last month, and now totally forgetting my prior experienced, reached into the cabinet under my bathroom sink, removed the Coppertone, and applied it before heading to the beach.
The weather here in Florida during the month of January was not very cooperative as far as the be as the beach goes, so I didn't use the Coopertone all that often. As we moved into February, however, things began to warm up, and my daily ritual of heading to the beach started up again. Each trip to the sand started with an application of Coppertone.
I woke up one morning last week experiencing the same dizziness, though not nearly as severe, that I had had more than two years previously. After getting out of bed, the feeling subsided, and still not thinking about the Coppertone, used it again that day.
The next morning the exact same thing happened to me, but once again and shortly after getting out of bed, the dizziness went away. It was at this time that my theory regarding the use of Coppertone hit me.
I have not used it since and, thus far, have not had any recurrence of dizziness.
I do not know if all of this is just one big coincidence, or if these symptoms are really brought on with my use use of Coppertone, but I have to wonder. I have never discussed the possibility with my doctor, but I know that I should and that I will the next time that I see him.
P.S. An attempt to reach me through my email address may be unsuccessful because of a filter on my computer. Unless the sender's email address is on my list of contacts an email message will not come through.

After using Cooppertone Ultraguard within 24 hours my skin was itching where it had been applied. Neck felt burned and raw even though it wasn't red. The itching spread to other areas of my body where the copperton had not been applied. The itch was severe and made sleeping difficult. I've been taking Benedryl 2 capsules every 4 hours for a week. There is some relief, but there are areas on my arm that hurt even to the touch. :( I went to my doctor and decided to give it another week before getting a perscription antihistamine.

I sprayed it on my back and shoulders....in a few hours I had red welts all over that area....intense itching and burning....felt odd and was in such distress I was up all night bathing with clear water and then epsom salts...I felt too dizzy and weak to go get anything at the drug store...it took about 4 days to subside to where I felt moderately comfortable...5 days later I still can feel bumps on the affected area...this is a horrible product....I tried it once before with the same reaction but thought it might have been an old can....I have used the white Coppertone spray can and the baby Coppertone spray can version with not the same reaction ....the only thing I can see different is these cans say hypoallergenic whereas the sport one does not...

|Put Coppertone SPF 8 ("non-greasy, light, fast absorbing formula") onto arms and face this morning at 9am. Drove 40 minutes to a nearby festival. After 20 minutes in the sun while watching an open event I noticed raised bumps on my sun exposed arms. An hour later as I enjoyed the festival, the raised bumps had become blisters. By mid-afternoon, the blisters had become larger and more numerous, even though I sought shade often, and did not sunburn at all. Upon coming home I rubbed a cotton ball on the blisters to release the fluid, leaving my arms flaky. The sun combined with the Coppertone sunscreen seems more harmful to my skin than the sun alone. I had a similar reaction with a Coppertone SPF 30 formula. I will switch to another brand of sunscreen in the hopes of avoiding future blistering upon immediate sun exposure.|

|First time I used the spray, I was on the beach less than two hours. It was the worst burn I have ever had. Nothing soothed it and it took forever to heal. Even after the redness went away my skin hurt. I thought that maybe the spray was old or went through a heat/cold. This summer I had a brand new bottle and got the same results but lesser because I was watching for it and sure enough it burned my skin again. This product should be removed from the market.|

|I innocently sprayed my 18 month old with Coppertone Sport sunscreen before going out to play a few days ago. About 15 minutes after application she got very red and looked burnt. I immediately brought her inside. Within 2 hours she looked like she had road rash all over her face. I panicked and rushed to the clinic. The doctor told us she had a horrible reaction to the chemicals in the spray, and had a chemical burn type reaction to it. Her poor little face is still raw with some pretty nasty looking burns that have started to scab. We were told to use only pure Aloe from the plant on her, and now 2 days later it's starting to dry up a bit and look slightly better, but I will NEVER use Coppertone sunscreen again. When we contacted the company we were told that some people react different than others, and they would be happy to refund us the 12 dollars we spent on the sunscreen. Ummm 12 dollars is all a child's face is worth to them! There will probably be permanent scarring :(|
