If pain killers can be used as a patch, is is plausable to say starched sheets and pillow slips in hotels etc can allow starch to get into our blood stream much the same as a pain killing patch works? Has anyone ever iodine tested hotel linen?

I have never experienced a flare from sleeping on hotel starched sheets, but I suppose anything is possible. I do understand how you would question it though, since things are so easily absorbed through our skin into our bloodstream. Have you noticed this happening to you?

I used to stay in hotels a lot in my previous job and my lower legs used to react to the bed-linen. Not in an AS way but the skin became sensitive and itchy.

Probably not related to AS at all as the starch would not have made its way to my digestive system I imagine.

one of the main purposes of our skin is as a barrier, to keep moisture within our bodies, to keep environmental microbes, chemicals, etc out of our bodies. and the skin does a remarkable job at that.

there are some chemicals that can penetrate this skin barrier and these are added to topical medications including patches to allow the medications to be delivered into the body. DMSO is a good example. if you were to take a NSAID pill, crush it in water, and place it on your skin, it would just sit there on the surface of your skin. but if you were to dissolve it in DMSO, it would penetrate the skin and be delivered into your bloodstream. that's just one example.

thus, unless you have an allergic skin reaction to starch, i think you are pretty safe sleeping on starched sheets.

if you want links to further explain anything i have written, just let me know.
