The Doctors discuss a 3-year-old girl who ended up in the hospital after playing with a toy makeup kit from a discount store. The parents shared on Facebook that “Within 24 hours of using this kit her eyes got swollen and were blistered shut, she developed a rash on her entire body, and she was unable to eat due to the blistering and cracked lips.”
It was determined that this girl had an allergic reaction from the makeup. Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra explains that this is being sold as a toy, not as makeup, so it’s not being regulated in the same way as cosmetics are. Furthermore, a lot of these toys are also coming from outside the US which again, means they may not be regulated.
Dr. Batra attempts to read the hard-to-pronounce ingredients on the back of a toy makeup box and even she doesn't recognize most of them.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon adds that parents need to act as detectives. Anything new that a child comes in contact with has the potential for an allergic reaction!
