BTW, nausea and vomiting is one of the symptoms of heat stroke. Maybe the only problem with the sunblock was it's lack of effectiveness.

Well, Coppertone is made by ScheringPlough, and their toll free help line is: 1-800-361-6550 (or if there is a number on the bottle, call it, they may be better informed). Call them, tell them what happened, and see what they say. The MSDS lists minor irritation to skin and eyes but no nausea, as side effects. You may be allergic to one of the ingredients.

I'm surprised it was the cream and not the spray. Apparently people have been using the "cloud" approach with the spray, inhaling some and getting sick.

Was it a new tube of sunblock? Has anyone else used it in the past? Have other people in the area using tubes from the same batch reported problems? I'm leaning more towards heatstroke too.

I have to use titanium dioxide and zinc oxide sunscreens, I can't use anything else without getting a rash. I don't get sick as a result of either of them.

All the more reason to consider the clothing with built in sun block.

Guys, my mom called and they apologized and refunded our money (even though we didn't ask). They said it's rare but it does happen, the lady on the phone said 'it's like getting food poisoning'. My mom even expressed we didn't want any money we just wanted to warn them, but they insisted. They won my business, just never the rub on kind haha.

My mutha called a company to complain how horrible something was. They sent her 10 coupons to buy the same items she was complaining about. I told her the guy on the phone was being a smart azz.
