Patient discussion about spray

Q. I am allergic to most of artificial perfumes and body sprays. is there is any method of treatment? If posible, also i need some advices about how to keep my body odour fresh and cool.

A. It depends what you mean by allergic. If you mean that all deodorants/ perfumes and such cause you skin rash - or eczema (a type of mild dermatitis), then it is a very known reaction to ingredients in those products that contain alcohol. You should buy only product that say 'anti-perspirant' on them, meaning they are less likely to cause such allergies. If you are suffering from mal body odur you should bathe twice a day (and use also an 'anti-perspirant' soap.) and consult a dermatologist on the proper treatment for you.

Q. I was told that platinum is used in fragrances for the fullness of the spray. Please tell me more! Three years ago I was diagnosed with off the lab chart levels of platinum in my body. I have no hobby or avenue for exposure other than my work. I have sold fragrances for over ten years. Even the Regional EPA Air Quality person doesnt know where I am getting this. I was told by a health director who made some calls. He told me that platinum is used in fragrances for the "fullness of the spray". Would you please tell me more about this? Thank you!

A. Thank you Joseph83! What list of materials shall I look at? I know that the FDA doesn't regulate these products; also, I wonder if there is a masking name for platinum. I have so much of this in me, it just has to come from somewhere! I'm amazed that the EPA SUPPOSEDLY doesn't know where its coming from either.
