So I’m allergic to smells. More specifically a naturally occurring chemical compound that is in the majority of scents. Man made or completely natural. Anyway, I love smells so it sucks that I can no longer be near them or touch them. There’s been no research on how my allergy to smells effects my guts, so as of right now I consume the things I’m allergic to by touch. Such as chocolate and oranges and tea. ANYWAYYYY, today I decided to wear makeup. Face paint is actually a better way to describe it. I’m aware I’m allergic to it, and if I’m not I’ll be shocked. I’m just waiting for the moment of pain and itching and although I look super cool I wonder if it’s worth it. It sucks because this allergy is programmed into my dna. the building blocks that normally protect skin are compromised in my body, and can only be made compromised. So even if I removed all my skin, whatever would grow back would still be allergic to scents(the compound). I often wonder if there’s a reliable cure. They say moisturizing three times a day and applying ointment when it flares and taking extra special care of it, while avoiding smells, might be a solution. I don’t want to spend the rest of my life in this dysfunctional flesh. Constantly spending money on fragrance free highly expensive soaps and products. Spending hours doing skin maintenance. Especially since I have this on top of other issues. The symptoms stack and make existing a nightmare.
