Does anyone else have a problem with asthma triggers in the workplace?



I am very sensitive to microwave popcorn, perfumes, and scented candles. The people I work with are very insensitive to this. How do I handle the problem?

  1. When people clean or dust around me, it triggers my allergies and sometimes I get a little wheezy.

    1. Hi DeeC, and thanks so much for your post. While I'm hopeful you will hear from others in the community with their own anecdotal experiences (thank you, Shellzoo, for chiming in here!), we do have some published material that specifically addresses your concern. I thought you might gain some additional insight from this article: https://asthma.net/q-and-a/triggers-in-the-workplace/.
      I do hope you find it to be helpful.
      All the best,
      Leon (site moderator asthma.net)
