    Maybe on your clothes? I can smell my hubby when he's been doing whatever, wish he'd wear overalls and take them off outside but other people can't understand how serious it is for us.
    Hope the doc does understand and has something useful to say.

    I've moved this thread to the 'Addressing Sensitivities' forum as it seems to fit better here. Could go under general discussion if you prefer...or in one of the Symptoms forums when we split that into sub-sections...

    That can come from elevated TGF-beta which can happen after mold exposure. It can cause "remodeling" in the lungs. Or also from cutting down circulation.

    I'm under the impression it's a protective response that the body does to try to limit the damage from mold from cutting down on how much of it you breathe in.

    I found that chewing fresh organic rosemary was helpful on the occasions that happened to me. It's anti-inflammatory and antifungal. And stopping getting exposed.
