perfume allergies

perfume allergies affect sports competition

In Canada, when the perfume of a "Scott Tournament of Hearts" participant caused an allergic response to another curler's perfume, last month, all contestants were asked to stop wearing perfumes and scents.

Everyday, more and more smokers are barred from smoking in office buildings due to the second hand smoke dangers that they cause their fellow workers. Because perfumes cause allergies in many people, should perfume and fragrances be barred as well?

Thousands of allergy causing perfume scents are in the products that people use everyday.  These products may be perfumes, drugs, cosmetics, plastics, skin care products, laundry soap, insecticides, hair conditioners and shampoos, and many others.

Symptoms of a perfume allergy can be asthma (or shortness of breath), watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sore throat, and inflamed skin rashes.

Even though these products are everywhere, the new labeling laws should make it easier to avoid perfumed products.

Be aware, however, that just because the label contains the word "fragrance free" or "unscented" does not ensure that the product is, in fact, perfume free. The product may contain a masking fragrance to hide the perfume scent.

If you look for the words "without perfume" on the label, you should be relatively safe that the product contains no perfume fragrances.
