I started vaping
about three weeks ago and noticed a skin outbreak starting to happen on my shoulders, upper chest and neck, like a mild rash of little tiny pimples. I've had allergic reactions before that manifest this way so I know it's not just the "quit zits" I've read about. And besides, I haven't really quit analogs, I just reduced down the number by about half with the intention of weaning myself off them completely.
So I assumed it was an allergy to PG
as that is what the e-liquid that came with the kit is made with, so I ordered an organic RY4 that is a PG
blend but got it in 36mg strength instead of the 18mg I was vaping previously because I felt like I wanted more nicotine. I tried vaping the RY4 full strength and the outbreak worsened dramatically. I tried cutting the RY4 with 0 strength VG
(1 part VG
, 2 parts RY4) but it doesn't seem to have helped. I'm wondering then if this is a liquid nicotine allergy rather than a PG
allergy? It's possible I didn't give the VG
cut RY4 enough of a chance but in the couple days I did give it, the breakout showed no signs of reducing. In my research, I haven't run across this type of reaction so I wanted to see if anyone had a similar experience? I really love vaping and want to continue but not at this cost. Thanks.
