    Exclamation Itchy Skin, Rashes: PG Allergy

    I did some research on PG today, and found that in a small portion of the population, it can cause dermatitis. I've been vaping since November and the last month my legs have become increasingly itchy. I thought I was allergic to my dog or something, than I thought maybe it had something to do with my e-cig. I'm pretty sure that I am mildly allergic to PG. Has anyone else had similar symptoms? Would switching to VG help?

    i've not had any pg reactions, but if you do, a switch to vg would help. i go back n forth betwixt the two, sometimes with a mix. i do notice that with the vg my skin is a little oilier though.

    My buddy at work is having similar problems. Says it gets much worse when he lays down. He's going to switch to VG for a bit to see if that clears things up.

    Hmmmm. I don't want to make too much of this, but I have had the same thing for some time (I've e-smoked for two years). Itchy legs, particularly as I try to go to sleep. I'll watch this thread ...

    I've noticed more itchiness and dry skin patches since beginning vaping. I also have dry scalp now, which I've never had before. I don't want to switch to VG, though!

    I have had hives since 2 months after starting the e-cig. Since I don't do well with pg anyway, I've been wondering if pg is my trigger. Going to Innovapor right now.

    I had the dry skin patches, itchy legs, bumps on my scalp, etc. for years before I started using ecigs. I just figured getting older sucked. When I got my first ecig I got the same feeling in my mouth, throat and lungs. My nails even started to peel. I put two and two together and switched to VG and got rid of all of my haircare, bodycare, makeup, handsoaps, everything with PG and PEG in it. I have felt a ton better. No more itching, rashes, it feels great.
    There are some really good VG juices out there. That's all I've used for over a year now.
