Post  oldguy Tue Feb 16, 2016 7:08 pm

Hey guy's anyone here allergic to glow fuel after years of using it?The last couple of days I have come down with a rash on my wrists and arms.It's never bothered me before.I'm not sure it is the fuel yet but it's looking like it could be the problem.Has anyone had any issues with getting a rash from glow fuel?

I have met a few that have experienced reactions as they grow older.

You may want to start wearing long sleeves and use gloves. The only other option is electric Shocked

I would doubt that an "allergy" to the methanol or nitromethane would develop, although neither is good for you. now a general sensitivity might be a different matter.

The castor, and synthetic oils, dyes, and other additives however I would suspect a little more. Did you switch fuels recently?

Glow fuel exhaust will bother my sinuses if I spend a long day of flying .... never had a rash though.

No it's the same sig fuel I have had for a while.I'm not sure it is the fuel yet, but it was somewhat better this morning, then I went out and did some testing and running some engines and a little while later the rash blew up again.Came in and washed real good and it has calmed down again.

Hi Jim, It's been a while.. I came upon this thread through an "allergy" search via CEF's internal search engine. I was in search of "CA" (super glue) allergies in particular.. but have you (or any other readers) had any further or noteable allergic reactions to any of the glow-fuel elements?

Hope all's well Jim,
Happy holidays

My only fuel allergy is my sorrow I feel after a few days of not smelling it and its exhaust fumes..
lol! RC Plane

Jokes aside, it is sad that many of those who posted in this and other threads have disappeared from CEF, I hope they are OK just maybe focus on other pleasures of life than playing with COX engines and planes etc..

As we age, our skin tends to dry out, so it may absorb more of the fuel components into our skin. Also, our resilience changes, too.

I've noticed that auto mechanics use more of the thin nitril gloves in their work, to avoid absorbing auto oils and grease into their skin. It is thought that excessive repeated absorbsion into the skin is a contributing factor to various skin and other cancers.

For someone who has developed a sensitivity to glow fuel or a component thereof, can simply wear these thinner disposable gloves that are least in hindering hand movement. Thus help to avoid receiving the rash problem.

I have found over time in my older age, that I am intolerant of wheat. I am allergic to grass pollen, of which wheat is a grass. If I avoid wheat in my diet, then I am less irritable, Mad  fart less, Embarassed and my sinus headaches Sad go away, Smile even during my worst allergy time, which is winter (extremely allergic to pine pollen). If I must eat wheat, then no more than a day, no repeats. Else, my irritability and severe sinus headaches return especially during my worst pollen days.

Our tolerance to certain chemicals can change. I've just learned to deal with it and move on. Truth is truth.

I always wear nitrile gloves when I mix fuel, run engines etc.

I also wear a heavy work glove when starting engines, flicking props. It is safer for the fingers.

I bought a fingertip tester. Shows oxygen saturation in percent. Not related with glow fuel but it is useful to check regularly. It also shows pulse.

Thinking Carcinogens produced from burning organic substances.

Post  roddie Thu Dec 07, 2023 1:24 pm

Many years ago I remember hearing reports that "burnt oil" produces carcinogens or PCB's. This was a particular concern for the "waste" motor-oil produced by IC engines.. and "end-of-life" oil-filled electrical power transformers.. but certainly not limited to those two producers. Apparently it's the "overheating" of these oils which changes their chemical composition enough to become hazardous.

Hi Levent, I recently wore a fingertip test device for a "home sleep study" to obtain data for treating my sleep apnea condition. In fact.. it's been almost exactly 10 years since my last sleep-study.. which I posted about HERE.

I'm trying to get help again.. because I just couldn't tolerate the CPAP/VPAP treatment attempts from 10 years ago. Left untreated; I've been at a higher risk for stroke, high blood-pressure.. and other health problems. There have been many advances made in the equipment for treating the condition over the last ten years.. so I'm hopeful.

I wish a speedy recovery to you. Yes, medical treatment advanced within time.

Last week in the morning suddenly I couldn't breathe easy and pulse was over 100. I went to hospital immediately. Electrocardiogram, respiration, bags full of liquids, checking oxygen saturation, x-ray etc. etc. in about two hours. Result is heart wall thickening -cardiomyopathy- and high blood pressure and three medicines need to be taken daily. I see that device -oximeter- in hospital and interested.

I also interested those vinyl tubings of serum bags and wanted to take them, however I couldn't said anything to nurses Very Happy

Levent.. Shocked That sounds like a very scary thing to have suddenly happen. Good that you were able to go immediately to the hospital. I've awoken a few times to a racing heart.. which I attribute to my sleep apnea.. but my body weight is the highest it's ever been @ 250+/- lbs. The weight-gain came-on with my quitting cigarettes six years ago. Now that I'm retired (since last February) I have more time take care of these increasing health issues... (where's the "sighs" emoticon?).

I'm scheduled for a "follow-up" with my general practitioner on Dec. 14th to review some recent labs done since being on a "Statin" (Atorvastatin 40mg actually) for the last 6 months which treats high cholesterol.

Have you seen the AFib commercial with Basketball legend Karrem Abdul-Jabbar? I plan to ask my doctor about testing for this.
