Are You Sensitive To Fragrance?
Fragrance sensitivity is a real condition that affects many people, and unfortunately for them, fragrance can be found almost everywhere. Fragrance sensitivity is a very common issue and the symptoms can range in severity from minor to quite serious.
From traditional perfumes and air fresheners to cleaning products and even foods, fragrances are a big part of everyday life and can be difficult to avoid.
WHAT IS FRAGRANCE SENSITIVITY?
Fragrance sensitivity is a condition in which a person displays irritation or an allergic reaction to ingredients or chemicals found in fragrances. These people are often allergic to the scents in a variety of regularly used items such as toiletries, cosmetics, cleaning products and pesticides.
Since fragrance is used in so many household items, exposure can be constantly occurring, and it can often be difficult to identify the source of the allergy since so many complex chemical formulations are used in our everyday household and personal products.
SYMPTOMS OF FRAGRANCE SENSITIVITY
The symptoms of fragrance sensitivity can vary based on the type of sensitivity the person has. There are two types of allergy sensitivity — respiratory and skin. The frequency and level of sensitivity can differ from one person to another. Symptoms can include:
Skin redness, itching and burning
Watery, itchy and red eyes
Sneezing / runny nose
Aggravation of asthma symptoms
PREVENTING AND TREATING FRAGRANCE SENSITIVITY
There are several things that may be done to ease the symptoms or reduce the occurrence of attacks caused by fragrance sensitivity. If symptoms are respiratory-related, nasal antihistamines and nasal corticosteroid medications prescribed by a Doctor or Pharmacist can help to control the allergy symptoms.
These are much like the medications used to treat seasonal allergies.
For skin related sensitivity, trying to keep fragrances away from the body and out of your immediate environment can help to reduce the likelihood of irritation. Many everyday products can contain scent, including:
Skin care products
Hair care products
