    I would come out in severe rashes or hives when I had a cold. I also developed Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and Polymyalgia Rheumatica at that time.

    It doesn't happen anymore although ever since my muscles are more prone to severe stiffness and pain if I overdo.

    Also the MCS is better but has not gone completely.

    I found Cetirizine, an antihistamine and a good steroid cream helped take the edge of the rashes.

    Cleaning up my environment and staying away from strong chemicals helped my MCS.

    I also take Milk thistle and N acetyl Cysteine which have helped my MCS but the latter (NAC) is not for everyone.

    As much fresh, clean air as possible also helped. I got an air purifier when I was at my worst.

    I hope you get over this soon.

    Love Bunchy x
