Well I've had asthma since I was 2 years old and as I've grown up the one thing that has really bugged me, and affected my asthma is perfume department in shops like Boots and other large stores.
We went to Yo shushi in Leeds at the weekend (its in a large department store) and by the time we'd walked through past all the purfume counters I ended up reaching for my inhalor.
Does anyone else have this problem and is there anything that can be done to help. It's often not as if the purfumes are being sprayed or used a lot - I suppose its the intensity of the 'smells' that affects me. Would this fall under health and safety as you are entering a 'work place'?
I would be interested to know how other asthmatics get on in these enviroments. Mind for that matter if someone is wearing a strong perfume that can affect me as well.
