What soap can I use that will not complicate my existing skin

Customer Question

What soap can I use that will not complicate my existing skin allergies? I get bitten / stung every day and I need a soap that will not make them turn into permanent blood streaks under the skin. The bites come from packaging of new items, parcels, shopping, especially shoe boxes which are among the worst source. These bites come in many different types and are greatly affected by which soap I use. I currently use non perfumed pure vegetable soap, and no detergent or make-up at all. Please can you help?
