I would like to know if anyone can tell me if breathing paint fumes can contribute to this. i am an artist and work with oil paint and encaustic (hot beeswax and damar resin). I am having to wait until mid June to see a pulmonologist . Reading on line has made me very anxious especially when I see info like, untreated MAC can result in early death.
I have been coughing since last October. Any info would be helpful. Thanks so much.
