Scent sensitive – Hyperreactive
“Research suggests thatone-third of us feel any kind of discomfort due to strong scents. If you are an adult, you can change seats on the bus if you’re sitting next to someone with a strong scent on, but what does a child exposed to what can give an allergic reaction do?
Ailo is ten years and received the diagnosis of non- allergic asthma when he was just under two years. Something that he reacts strongly to the scents; it can be about flowers, smoke, or fragranced products. It works fine at school so far, says mom Anneli, well aware that children ten years old are not yet any large consumers of scented products, but that it’ll be harder to come. The school has taken the issue seriously. It has been informed of Ailos sensitivity to smells and everyone takes this into account. There is another boy in the class having allergies, and this in turn helps to discussing the issue about allergies more and get a better understanding of those who are afflicted. Sometimes it can happen that Ailo get exposed to scented Products at school. One such opportunity that can happen is related to gymnastics lessons. It may have been someone from the upper classes who have been wearing something strong-smelling in the locker room. But it is clear that even Ailo want to make themselves beautiful. Above all it is cool hairstyles that apply. Now we have found a kind of hair wax without fragrance that works well. Previously tested Ailo a hairspray that did not work at all. The scent becomes very concentrated in a product that you spray on them. Some time ago there was a house that was on fire and the smoke was blowing straight towards Ailos and Anneli’s home. Though it was a kilometer away got Ailo a strong asthma reaction. Smoke seems to be something that Ailo react strongly against. We were with a relative and a man there had a motorcycle that the guys thought was cool. When he started it and gassed in the yard got Ailo again an asthma attack sensing of exhaust smoke. With proper medication cope Ailo still pretty good. It is clear that in cold periods may be necessary to increase the dose of medication something. I’m glad that so many shows take into account Ailos asthma and sensitivity to scents, concludes the mother.
And again I can only agree With this kids story, it is like that and I wish all would take this in account and stop wearing perfume and fragranced Products. Did you know there are about 300 million People having asthma in theh world? If you stop using fragrance Products you will ease the life of many. And really, this is just what it is like. Thank you Anneli Spjellok and Ailo for sharing Your story.
