At check-in, the lady at desk had on so much perfume, I could not stand in the lobby or else I would have gone into respiratory arrest. I asked the lady if she was wearing perfume. She replied, "Yes, do you like it?" I told her no, that it was compromising my breathing. Fortunately, my fiancé was with me, so I had someone able to check-in. People need to realize fragrance allergies are on the rise and can cause, among other symptoms: Respiratory distress (wheezing, shortness of breath, bronchospasm, and inability to breathe), dermatitis (rash, hives, etc.), migraines, pain, GI distress, etc.
(sadly, even my hospital co-workers wear scents and we are taught not to. I've seen patients have a code called because of it!)More
