I always get stuffy nose and start sneezing repeatedly when I use a detergent to wash and it continues even after I am done washing. Is it an allergic reaction?

It definitely could be! I would experiment with other hypo-allergenic detergents to see if you have the same reaction. You can use the Environmental Working Group’s Cleaners Guide to find clean/hypoallergenic cleaning products. I love how they rate everything and give a toxicity score based on how allergenic the product is.
