Has anyone else experience multiple chemical sensitivity?


I strongly think I have multiple chemical sensitivity. It seems like I have reactions to so many daily items like make up ( for example). I was wondering if anyone else on HP has experienced this or has any recommendations on coping with it. I just try to avoid the things I know I react to it feels like the list gets longer and it gets harder. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for sharing. Sounds a lot like me. It does get tiresome and I accept it. Its a way of life and I wouldn't go back to wearing make up or my old habits. But I get worried if it is the sign of something greater. Or something treatable. Thx again

    Very true! Its unfortunate how much we are exposed to. Great advice. Benadryl is great for histamine response symptoms. Thanks!

    You have inspired me to keep researching and write a hub about it because actually there is a difference between allergies and sensitivity. Allergy provokes an antihistamine response. Sensitivity provokes an array of symptoms like headaches. Thanks!
