Patient discussion about material

Q. What is the ingredient in perfume or Cologne that will trigger an asthma attack? There is something in cologne/perfume that's not in body spray that triggers my asthma. I went out with a friend and he had on cologne and my asthma starting bothering me. Before going out my asthma hadn't bothered me in months because I stay away from things that may trigger an attack. This often happens with other things like bleach, ajax or any bad odor

A. Anything that irritates the nose and bronchi can cause an attack. No one really knows why...but it does. Cigarettes and pollution are common cause also.
