Hi I'm Dr. phil
Can I ask your first name?
nice to meet you
do you have allergies?
Hi to you
None that I am aware of
I do think you might be becoming allergic to this
is that possible?
I dont think so
what do you believe it is?
it does sound like allergies to me
I just find that stale tobacco and body odour smells cause me to react very badly and dont react to fresh tobacco or sweat?
you may be developing an intolerance or an allergy specifically to that
it could also be that your nose is more sensitive now that you cut back on smoking
this is common
so smells that didn't bother you before now do because you can smell better
is there anything I can use to stop the symptoms? I have lost a close friend because of it as I cant bear to be in a room with her as the physical reaction makes me feel so ill. Like someone has put red hot pokers up my nose and my head aches so badly.
I would try to use a substance like vaseline in the nose that blocks the smell
your nose will eventually become less sensitive
but in the meantime, this can help
any more questions?
No. Joys of not being a smoker. Revenge of my nasal cilia for all the damage I did to it over many years. Thanks
they will get over it :)
