People with multiple chemical sensitivities can have reactions to common scents in body care products, perfumes and colognes as well as cigarette smoke and household cleaners.
Exposure to these chemicals/ scents can cause headache, migraine, seizures, breathing problems and worsening of chronic pain.
To minimize the effects to people with MCS you can:
· Purchase and use scent free or fragrance free body, hair and face products as much as possible
· Use natural cleaners such as baking soda and vinegar around the house and in your laundry (baking soda works great for laundry!)
· If you smoke, do so away from common walk ways and doorways, don’t smoke in enclosed spaces or when you’re in a big group of people, wash hands and face after smoking and wear an outer layer of clothing you can remove after you smoke
