Finally I have found a reason for the horrendous rash and itchy skin I have. Was on holiday in France in Aug 2010 and developed a v bad rash all over. It led to my face swelling really badly and eventually I had to see a French GP. When I returned to UK, my own GP then prescribed steroids which eventually calmed my skin down. I put the problem down to an insect bite I might've got while on holiday. This last wkend (April 2011) I used Piz Buin allergy 15 again and that night became really itchy and again covered in a v nasty rash. The rash was only on the parts of my skin I'd used the Piz Buin on - arms, neck and chest. I then realised it had been this that had made my skin so bad in the summer of 2010. I googled Piz Buin this morning and found this website to have realised that down to this new formula, my skin is having a horrendous reaction. I also add that I've used Piz Buin for the last 15 yrs and never had any problems so am v sad that this has happened. I will never use it again after having experienced such a horrid time with it and I urge anyone else to contact Piz Buin which I will be doing.
