I Crave Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder With Aloe and Vitamin E.

I am a baby powder eater and a former dirt and   cornstarch eater , I consumed dirt for about 18 years and  cornstarch for about 4 years and I tried to quit so many times that I lost count.  I went form dirt to cornstarch after I read posts about a condition called pica in which people were eating cornstarch out of the store, so I decided to buy some and I was immediately hooked and no longer wanted the dirt.  I started with the baby powder because while consuming cornstarch I decided that I was going to go cold turkey and totally stopped consuming for about 2 weeks, I was determined not to buy any and then one day I was in my bath room and I wanted some starch so bad, I saw my bottle of vagisil feminine powder and noticed that It was talc free and had cornstarch in it, so I decided to taste it, I poured some in my hand and licked it, the perfume was a little overwhelming, but I couldn't put it down, the feel of it on my tongue was OMG! before I knew it I had eaten the whole bottle, I felt so ashamed that I had resulted to feminine powder that I eventually just gave into my cravings and went out and purchased a box of cornstarch, surprisingly, it was bland and I wanted the perfume taste, so I went back to the store to get some more  vagisil and thought maybe I should try baby powder instead, so I purchased a bottle of Johnson & Johnson pure cornstarch baby powder with aloe and vitamin E and I fell in love with it. I have been consuming that for about a year now, with no desire for the cornstarch, I will however mix cornstarch with the baby powder if I get a bottle that has to much fragrance in it also I never swallow, I c&s, I've read the posts about the cornstarch being in a new container, I have not bought any in a long time, have they changed the flavor, I was in the store today and saw the new container, I started to buy some just to taste, but it just didn't interest me. The baby powder be calling me:). I would love to converse with other baby powder, cornstarch or dirt eaters, fell free to contact me.

I worked for ten years in a company that manufactured talcum powder. Please stop eating the powder anybody that eats it, because it's just as dangerous as asbestos. A lot of the women I worked with ended up with breast cancer or ovarian cancer or early hysterectomies. It is a dangerous substance. AKA the company closed due to several law suits.

I am also a corn starch eater :) I dont know why I crave it, but I have to admit that when Im stressed or sad I eat more of it. I just recently found out that when my grandmother was a little girl she occasionally would sneak into her moms laundry starch. I wonder if its hereditary(excuse the spelling) lol!

I use to eat Johnson & Johnson from since i was a small child. i had stopped when i was pregnant & started back 5yrs later. Then a friend of mine & i was talking & she told me abt cornstarch, i tried it but i just preferred j&j... i dont knw when it happened but i stopped again & for about 3 years and just 3 to 4 months ago i started craving cornstarch and its like its more intense than ever, i find my self buying a container every two weeks & i really dont want to end up going through a box a day...I do suffer with anemia and a persc<x>ription for iron, i dont take the pills only cause they make me sick......if there is anything else i can do please feel free lm open to suggestion.....thnks

I too eat Johnson and Johnson aloe with vitamin E since I was 12 years old...I'm now 29...I was wondering do any of you have kids, cause I haven't been able to get pregnant and was wondering if eating baby powder was the cause...please help...thanks

I started in my teen years just liking to washhing my hands in powder dishwasher soap and laundry soap. I had gastric bypass.I lost 140 pounds. soon after i started craving it bigtime! This time I ate it. Just a few granules on my finger throughout the day. Sometimes I would throw up.I had some intestinal Blockagesnot sure if it was related to the bypass or the soap. I have always had low iron.I stopped for a bit...not sure how. when I started again 3 years ago i found myself hooked on comet,ajax and love the dollar store scouring powder. I would spoon teaspoons into my mouth at a time. I could go through a few cans a week. It didnt matter if my mouth got sore.I felt like i needed it when i got stressed. A total addiction. I have gained 30 pounds and have bag leg cramps. I also have low potassium.I dont want to be fat and feel bloated. I did research and found that it has soda ash..and sodium.....weight gaining junk!!!! So far i have been off it 3 days. Im taking a ! a day vitamin 2 times a day and a prenatal....im not pregnant but its good for women. Id like to do a fruit juice and water fast to flush my system.<br />
Dont know if anyone else suffers from the same conditions....but i am a medical insominac...i have been on ambian for years.Has anyone noticed that on all the fourms it seems to only be women suffering from this?....<br />
I have also tried....wall putty..cig ashes...babypowder... I feel nuts but im ready to make changes. I hope this posting helps someone

OMG I also had the gastric Bypass in 2008 and lost 127 pounds. My iron is always loan. I start craving baby powder so I tried the shower to shower but the prefume was to strong. Then I tried J &amp; J Vitamin E with aloe. It taste so good. I chew and spit. I don't swallow it all. I go through two bottles a week. I can only do J &amp; J with pure corn starch. I am anemia. I take two iron pills a day. Just love baby powder. Good to hear I am not the only one out there. Lovebyall we need to talk. :)

i thought i was the only one eat baby powder until i met a co-worker one day she saw me eating it and she told me she do to i started 17 years ago when i got pregnant with my 1st child and been eating it every since my kids be trying to hide it from me!!I be in search a bad mood when i can't get it!But like you if i'm in an area where i can spit it out i do,i hardly ever swallow it.OMG!!!!

I highly suggest that you try eating Wheat Germ instead. You may have a vitamin E deficiency that is causing your anemia. Craving baby powder with vitamin E in it is a sign of needing vitamin E. Wheat germ has a pleasant texture and you'll likely find that after eating few tablespoons daily your craving subside. Wheat germ is sold in the cereal aisle of most grocery stores.

OMG!, i thougt am the only one in the system. In my my childhood days i love to smell dirts after it had rainned and sometimes have a taste of it. I started with johnson and johnson powder when i became pregnant of my first child and ever since then i've been hooked on it.<br />
what baffles me is that my first child is autistic and this makes me think sometimes maybe it has to do with the powder, i had two other kids and they are nomal.<br />
i have also been diagnosed to be anaemic, does it have to do with the talcum powder?<br />
what are the side effects?<br />
i need help please!!!

I have been eating baby powder for most of my life... I started when I was younger and stopped when in my preteens.. but when I reached the age of 16 the craving came back. I was eating Johnson's Baby Powder w/ Talc and when I found out it was horrible 4 ur insides stopped. Then i saw my grandmother have Johnson's Baby Powder w/ Cornstarch and it contained no Talc so I decided 2 try it and I loved it... I have been eating it for 2 years now and I cant stop. I have put on so much weight.... it has become unhealthy I really am trying to kick this habit. Can some one help

I know the feeling for I have been eating J&J Cornstarch with aloe and vitamin E for approx. 6 yearsw. Has it possibly affected my GI,maybe? I started when I found out that I was pregnant. I have been diagnosed with anemia but its not severe. I sometimes struggle expelling waste but I still love mky POWDER>>>>

Well, it probably is pica, but it doesn't seem your searching for answers... but just people who have the same desire to eat these things as you.<br />
<br />
Doesn't seem particularly healthy, or safe, to me... <br />
<br />
but, as I say, to each their own.

Hi, I know that I am anemic and have been forever, I take iron and sometimes it will stop the cravings other times it just doesn't work and I have to give into the cravings. I feel that I have it under control, I can stop for weeks at a time, but when I feel like consuming again, I just do it. I love the taste. Thanks for the commit.

Have you talked to your doctor about this? I know pica can occur if your body is deficient in some way and you are not getting the vitamins or something you need.
