Can I be allergic to toilet paper? I find little pieces stuck to me after using the bathroom which if not removed causes redness, itching, burning, swelling and pain. If so what can I do?

Thanks for the query.
Yes you can be allergic to toilet papers.
In fact it is one of the commonest thing causing allergy.

You can apply hydrocortisone lotion.
This is available over the counter and you will get relief with it.
Also take an anti histamine tablet like cetrizine.

Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you
