I was diagnosed with exercise induced asthma back in 2011 and I am able to manage it very well except for when I have an infection of any kind (because then, a few stairs already count as exercise). Since about 3 years I noticed that also strong smells like deodorant and perfume seem to trigger my asthma, whenever someone sprays themselves with that stuff around me I cannot breathe and need to open a window/leave the room. This has been gradually getting worse, and I even had a few asthma attacks because of this. Anyone else with the same problem? Can you actually be allergic against some of the chemicals in deodorant/perfume?
Right now, I am going to boarding school so I live with roommates who unfortunately are not very mindful of my asthma, despite me telling them that they need to use their deodorant outside they just use it in the room, causing me to have 4 asthma attacks within this week. Maybe I am just so sensitive right now because I also have bronchitis...yesterday I was barely able to stand the smell of my own showering gel (which really isn't that strong) and I am just a bit worried where this is coming from...
I would really appreciate some advice on this topic and sorry if this post is a bit long, I am new here.
