Smell of rubbing alcohol brings on symptoms
Hello, this is an unusual question. I have read about people taking disulfram (antabuse) occasionally becoming sensitive to other alcohols such as in colognes and rubbing alcohol. My trouble is, I have this problem just because of my innate biology. I'm just highly sensitive to alcohol fumes and even other compounds related to alcohol such as the propylene glycol used as a 'carrier' for many scents, and for the flavoring in vaping machines. It's very difficult to avoid all of these in daily life, and it's annoying to family and roommates that I'm so sensitive to so many products. There are some things that I'd like to consider as careers (in health care or veterinary care) that I feel are off-limits to me because of this sensitivity, as they require being around rubbing alcohol all day. I've read, and I've experienced, that the only option I have is to keep avoiding these situations. But I would love to have another solution! Does anyone have any ideas, no matter how 'outside the box'?
Thank you in advance for your help!
