Customer Question
Have you heard of...

Have you heard of being allergic to toilet paper. I read a column that says toilet paper is made using BPA and there is now a toilet paper on the market that is not made with it.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

I am taking no medications for this. I have a condition where my genital area is constantly irritated.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

I take only medication for high blood pressure but only since last March. I have had this condition much longer than that.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
