    If you're sensitive to fragrances, everyday tasks can become difficult. Going to the mall or grocery store can become overwhelming and cause nausea or asthma attacks. The strong scent of perfume wafting off a coworker can trigger a migraine or sore throat. Fragrance sensitivity is a growing problem as more companies use artificial fragrances in everything from laundry detergent to hand soaps.

    Dealing with fragrance sensitivity can be rough, but there are products on the market that make it easier. We carry specialty fragrance-free lotion and soap. You can also purchase scent-free laundry detergents and dryer sheets, along with deodorants, sunscreen and soaps. Make sure everyone in your household uses these products to make your home a fragrance-free haven.

    But what about leaving the house or going to work? Thankfully, if you have a doctor's note, your employer (or school) is legally required to make the workplace better suited to your particular needs. Your employer has several options to accommodate fragrance sensitivity. They can allow you to have your own office, telecommute, take frequent outdoor breaks, or allow you to wear a respirator on the job. Communicate with your employer and coworkers openly to come to an understanding about what products must be avoided, and what compromises can be made by all parties.
