Most Americans don’t even think twice when it comes to slathering on over-the-counter topical medication for a skin ailment. (Hey, anything to avoid a trip to the doctor, right?!) But sometimes we place too much faith in the products that are available to us. While the U.S. Food and Drug Administration does their best to keep up with the latest safety information, we fall way short of European Union standards. Many ingredients that have been banned for years in Europe in light of scientific discoveries still appear freely in products sold in The United States. One of these ingredients is known carcinogen Diethanolamine, which is found in Lotrimin Antifungal Cream.
