I was trying to find something more about strong reactions to smells among various posts but with limited success.
A month ago following a cleaners' visit I had a very strong reaction to the smell of detergents they were using and ever since have been oversensitive to any chemical smells.
Anything containing Perfum (fragrance) had to go from the house and we are now using bicarbonate of soda and soda crystals for cleaning. However my husband was still using a 'normal' washing powder to
which I had a strong reaction yesterday so from today it is soap flakes for all the washing.
The problem is that I am now reacting to smells on people as well and the whole thing seems to be escalating. I went to a GP today who tested my air blowing capacity (under the normal range) and gave me antihistamine tablets to try for a month. Does anybody have experience with similar problems and treating it with antihistamines or anything else?
From reading I know that hashis sometimes develop such reaction and it might have most to do with adrenals or liver detoxification problems. I am also probably still undermedicated as I could only start to stabilise my levothyroxine a few weeks ago when all supplementation/diet started to kick in. I am currently on 12/25 mg of levo with the view it will probably go up and probably still low on other vitals like vit d3 and ferritine.
Any ideas what might help in the meantime?
