And to complain about the smell of cigs round doorways is nuts after you have just walked down a road and breathed in exhaust fumes.

No doubt people should walk everywhere who feel that strongly about these things.

Not having a go just complaining about elective gripes x


Thanks for the health advice Denise.
Yes I may also be nuts, there is plenty of evidence to support your theory, but I am very allergic to cigarette smoke, along with most perfumes, detergents, air fresheners, deodorants and soaps. This situation worsened year on year until quite recently and now seems to have reached a plateau. In fact it may be reversing somewhat, I can now walk down the detergent aisle in a supermarket without too much wheezing. Phil will suggest that I don't go down said aisle. For many years, in many supermarkets, persons without allergies chose to arrange the aisles such that cat food was facing detergents in the same aisle.

Fortunately I am not allergic to traffic fumes in the street to such a great degree or in the same way, unless they are in an enclosed space in which case I get immediate breathing problems.
Now back to that bit about being nuts

Volty

Oddly enough sympathise with you because I suffer with much the same malady myself. My wife is not allowed to wear scent deodorant hair spray of that nature lest I be physically sick. I too cannot walk down the perfume aisles in shops and I won't even go in some shops. In the past I have had to leave some functions because the smell of perfume and aftershave has been unbearable.

Phil,
People who are immune simply can't imagine what it's like having to avoid these chemicals that are in everyday use. It can certainly spoil my day if I get it wrong.

I don't wear aftershave but someone gave me a bottle of Polo by Ralph Lauren some years ago and I found that it has very little effect on me.
Her next door has found two perfumes that don't kill me if worn in moderation (a tiny dab), one is Cinema and I don't remember the other.

My own list of tolerable products is:
Vosene, Simple and Johnsons Baby hair shampoos.
Imperial Leather soap, Ivory bar only
Dove and Avon Black Suede roll-on deodorant.
Fairy Liquid washing up
Ecover and Ecos Laundry Detergent Free and Clear.

Although the Vosene and soap can make the palms of my hands bright red and itchy if I use them in the wrong order.

Volty

Although I don't use a lot of spray on deodorants as I favour roll on ones, sprays and talc bring me out in a rash. Oddly enough stuff I wear myself doesn't affect me because once it's on I can't smell it. The wife has found that she can get away with wearing a little "Opium" so all her toiletry items are of that brand.

You obviously need to live in a bubble Voulty...................non allergic material of course.
You could go anywhere like a little hampster.

Seriously I do feel for you but I can't see any answers as you are allergic to modern life.

Denise, I would love a bubble, some suitable non fluffy bedding and all round sunlight.


But I have to earn a living so it just means avoiding certain things wherever possible and sometimes suffering where avoiding them isn't practicable.
By chance, as I was sitting here at my desk I found my chest is getting tight and I'm getting a sore throat. It turns out that the latest bottle of ECOS detergent, which my shirt was washed in, wasn't free and clear it has a mild, barely detectable, Lavender perfume.
I ordered the wrong one.

As you say it's modern life that's the problem. No doubt the poor air quality in Birmingham's traffic filled streets has contributed to it but I think the abundance of unnecessary chemicals in almost everything we buy is the root cause.

Yes Astoness,
we have it in the house as a standby but I can confuse it with similar plain looking perfumed soaps that other in the house sometimes buy, whereas my Imperial Leather is quite distinctive, even without the label.

I can of course make no comment on the simpleness of all this.

I've got a huge lump of carbolic soap if thats any good to you. You can't get much more natural than that or are you allergic to phenol as well?
