What to do if you have an allergy to fragrances, besides avoid them? I have an allergy to perfumes, colognes. I try to avoid going to stores where people are wearing them, but still have to leave my home. So many people wear tons of perfume and it makes me really sick. Is there such a thing as allergy shots I can get for a fragrance allergy ?
My family too. I can not use clorox, lestiol or other cleaners in my home without a severe reaction. I actually feel as though my brain is swelling. I use softscrub once in the bathroom and thought it was going to kill me. I had very rapid heart beat and felt like I was going to have a heart attach. I do have the same but milder reaction to perfume, perfumed candles and other odors. The only thing I know to do is avoid them. People who wear that strong perfume have no idea what it is doing to them. When my kids and grandkids wear perfume I have to get away from them it causes me to become very irritable and changes my personality. My mother and sister were the same way. In fact my sister passes out.
My mom and I so know this one. We have lots of issues with smells.
