Chemical in Baby Wipes Linked to Rashes in Some Kids

WRIC)—Health experts are warning
parents after a preservative found in some baby wipes has been links to an
allergic rash in some children.

In six different cases, the chemical methylisothiazolinone,
commonly known as MI, was linked to crusting, swelling and blistering on young
children's skin, according to a study published in the journal Pediatrics.

In each of the six cases, parents reported using two brands
of moist wipes: Huggies and Cottenelle.

Kimberly-Clark, the manufacturer of both brands, says it's
taking steps to remove methylisothiazolinone from its wipes.
