Just joined the forum.
I work on a car ferry a week at a time -when I'm home my peak flow is 650 and higher, when on board it drops to 600 and below and I cough alot, get tight chested sometimes and produce loads of mucus. Seen a specialist who reckons it's the vehicle fumes on the car deck that are triggering it (imagine 30 lorries with engines running in an enclosed space and you get the idea)
Apart from regular doses of steroids and steroid tablets and using a nebuliser he recommends that I wear a mask when working. Can anyone recommend a mask designed against vehicle fumes that doesn't make me look like Darth Vader?
Much as I would like to ask the occupational health department to take me off car deck duties there is no alternative and I can't afford to lose my job either. Very cheesed off so any help on the mask front would be appreciated!
