How can I avoid it?
Skin contact with Tocopherol is required for it to cause a rash. Discontinuation of exposure to products containing Tocopherol should result in improvement and/or resolution of your dermatitis. By law, all products made in the U.S. for topical use, have the ingredients listed either on the product package or the box that contains it. Check the labeling of your skin care products for this ingredient. If there is not enough information, ask your pharmacist. At work, request a Safety Data Sheet (SDS) to help identify potential sources of exposure.
