People are allergic to me too
I had read that someone had a similar problem to mine. Within a few minutes of entering a room, people begin coughing and/or sneezing.(By the way, it's always 2 coughs in a row.) I am not sick at all but everyone around me becomes sick upon meeting me. Doctors have told me that it's just allergy season, but this has been going on for a couple years! Besides the endless coughing and sneezing, other symptoms that people develop include: itching around the eyes and nose, acne (on face and neck), sores on the outer lips, and fatigue. I feel alone and am making myself an outcast from society.  This feels like an airborn virus but besides the dermatological aspect, I do not feel sick at all. I wish someone could help me. Any suggestions would help.

People are not allergic to you.  They are not touching you or reacting in an "allergic" way. It sounds like they are reacting to an odor. They may be reacting to something on you.  They may not like your cologne, after shave, perfume, whatever. I have seen rooms full of people react to strong scents. They may not like something on your clothes.  Do you have dogs or cats or other pets that may have left hair on your clothes?  There is an odor that some people have that they can't smell, but others can. It is the pungent odor of old sweat. This odor comes from sleeping or laying down on bedding that hasn't been washed for a while, especially blankets. People wash the sheets often, but forget about the blankets and top covers.  The odor will transfer from the bedding to you and your clothes when you lay down or lay your clean clothes on them.  Blankets will collect dead tissue and sweat as you sleep and bacteria builds up in them. If you are used to the odor you will no longer smell it, but alot of people react to the odor in the manner that you describe.  The best thing to do is go to someone you know and trust to tell you the truth and ask them about smells.  Wash your blankets at least once each month, or more often in the Summer if you sweat alot.  Hope this helps

Hmm. Well, although it's possible that I smell bad, I'm pretty sure that's not the case. I bathe every morning and wear clean clothes everyday. However, I still decided to test the "old sweat" theory. I washed my sheets/blankets thoroughly with no luck. If I felt sick all the time then it wouldn't be so weird- but I'm not. Everyone else is! I'm sure I'm not crazy although recently I've started to question even that. Someone help me please.

finally, I'm not crazy.

I too find that people react strangely when I'm present. It been almost 3 year since i made this connection. People would start complaining of feeling light headed, eye & nose would start itching and running, some would start acting like something is biting their skin, some people would become irritable and down right nasty within minutes and some would would become down right sleep and drained. (some of you might not even make it thought reading this post.) I can't figure it out, sometimes i think it allergies but sometime (very seldom) even long distance interaction causes people to sneeze. I started to think it was my energy or something.

My life was almost completely ruin due to this, whatever it is. I saw many doctors, became very depressed, i was in physo therapy and on physo meds for a number of years, I became hyper sensitive to every uncomfortable reaction or complaint.

I don't mean to remove any hope from anyone with this condition but I had it real bad. I said had because my reaction to other reaction was extremely severe. I still suffer from anxiety attacks of thought of having to meet new people and i have reconfirmed and have to go through the motions but how i deal with this now is, I know what to expect and i've come to point in my life where i can't let this stop my living. I've also noticed the some people will get over those ill feeling and get acclimate to my presence.

As you can see, i much to say on this subject because it has haunted me for years, i lost friends, dating has been hard, I've ended really great relationships because i couldn't stand to see someone i care for suffer and knowing I was the cause, and work was extremely hard. Many people might have noticed this connection and just said whatever, but not me, i took it personal and it made me physically ill, mentally unstable and emotionally drained.

I've been dealing with it much better, through self help tapes and such to help built my confidence cause in the end that is the only thing that can take you the next day.

Today, The one "benefit" is that it has made me stronger because just knowing your mere presence can make someone take a complete 180 degrees for the worst is completely draining.

I've just complete 1 week in new position at my job, and the very first day the complaints started but I just have to take this on one day at a time cause i not ready to remove my self from society and move to the mountains. i actually considered that. I'm at the point where it this is actually comical, cause the people I've told this took thinks I'm crazy, including family. it got to a point where i could take it no more and keeping to myself, so I had to check with someone, and family and doctors confirmed to me that i was nuts. well, now I know I'm not nuts and i have to laugh cause it sounds crazy but its real.

How I found this site. i was watching a ABC News story ( http://abcnews.go.com/Primetime/story?id=2287206&page=1
&
http://abcnews.go.com/Video/playerIndex?id=2298473 ) about a woman who smell like dead fish all her life and lead me thinking about my situation, we are about the same age, in our 30s and I'm male. The article mentioned Philadelphia's Monell Chemical Senses Institute where the woman got treatment (plan on giving them a call to check this out) what if i emitted a similar but odorless chemical.  anywho… i did a search and here i am.

Hi

Have you asked people around you that react by coughing or sneezing why they are doing that? Has anyone ever told you that its when you are around them you cause these problems? I am just interested as it seems so unusual that you could cause lip sores sneezing coughing & irritability by just entering a room. I too thought it may have been an odour thing but will look forward to hearing what the doctor says. It sounds like a difficult thing to have to live with. Good luck

How many of you work with chemicals? I know I got a cleaning job right around the time this started happening! Some chemicals can be expelled through your skin as your body tries to get rid of them. If your body temperature was higher then more chemicals could be released as you perspire more. Check out this link (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2-Butoxyethanol). This stuff is in all sorts of stuff including household cleaning products.

I want to say that you guys are not alone.  Iv noticed the same thing for about 2 months now... Have no idea why it is happening and have tried everything, the clothes, different wash lotions blah blah blah..  Iv come to realise that is has to be somthing that has changed internally that is doing this.  It does get worse if im in  headted environment as well!  Almost let it stop me from getting on with my life but you know what, i'v accepted that it's happening and it has made it much easier for me to do what i need to do!  Now all i think we need is for a doctor or somone to tell us what it is and how we stop or get rid of it because it is very annoying when it comes down to it!  I'm lucky because it dosnt affect the people that are around me all the time as much as the general public and thats the main thing for me!

Somone has to know what this is and how the hell its hapening!?

The same thing happens to me. I used to think I was alone. I think I am emitting some chemical that is acting as allergen. I do not know what it is or where it is coming from? my breathe or skin? I showered twice a day so I do not think I am unclean. I wear clean clothes. Whenever I am in a room, not everyone but someone would start sniffing and or coughing.  This can happen outdoor too! So I do not think it has an odor. When I am relaxed, it does not happen as much, only when I am nervous, which is alot, and usually everytime after I eat. This has happened to me about 10 years ago. Before this, i used to have serious episodes of intense sneezing, coughing and watery eyes, so there seems to be a connection. I do not have these episodes anymore tho. I cannot use cologne because it seems to be more serious when I use something with fragrant like cologne or lipstick. I used unscented deodorant. This has ruined my life. Work is hard because I always have anxiety. I try to isolate myself from everyone. I really hope someone can find out something about this. I can never be happy while i am suffering from this condition.
Sincerely,
Sad and lonely

I had been experiencing the same precarious problem for the past 4 years with no effective diagonsis.

The thing that drives me crazy is according to Doctors (visited scores) that I am quite alright. On top it, I have no allergies at all.

So far, I have diagonised with GERD & Sinus only. Doctors say that GERD is no where connected with this problem.

Have you guys have the Sinus related problems? Please feel free to forward your experiences.

I have undergone enough stress due to this and I remember the days I walked kilometers just hesistate to take a bus just bcos others suffer.

The thing you have to realize is, others do not think it is as bad as we think. I used to think that everyone hates me because I am causing them to feel irritable, til I relaxed and talked to people,I found that alot liked me because of my personalities. Just like every social encounters, if you are relaxed and are comfortable with yourself, others will like you no matter what. For me, if i am relaxed, it does not seem to be as bad. Sorry to get sidetracked but I just want people to know that there is hope for us to be a little bit happy despite suffering from this. When I have a chance, I will still go see a doctor, maybe they don't know how to treat this, but i want to maybe see about getting something to help me deal with anxieties. I will also continue to search online about this. If anyone finds anything, please share with the rest of us here. Thanks

What's up guys. I'm not thrilled to say this but I too am plagued with this curse. I have done hours upon hours of countless research, testing and hypothesizing. My findings, though incomplete, is nonetheless heart-breaking. I don't know where to start exactly. This has already begun ruining my life, did I mention I am a 20 year old 'freshman' in college, just guess what prevented me from going any sooner. It's pure torture I tell ya; whenever I enter a room with people or even pass by someone I cringe wondering if they'll flare up by sneezing or coughing multiple times, watery eyes, hiccupping, and scratching their nose. I have no other choice but to live with it and try to experiment on myself at the same time.   I've learned a lot. I have become a very intelligent guy because of this. I've read probably hundreds of pages of myths, folklore, folktales, religious texts, medical journals from all over the world. You will go through some **** guaranteed; people will think you

Hello,

I too am a walking, talking, and breathing allergen.  I've endured the same experiences you have been through.  I can't tell you how much this had hurt my life.  I can go through all the stories and experiences, but you all have lived it too so you know how I feel.  But, one thing that keeps me and helps me to go on is my father.  Not my biological father, but my father in heaven.  God.  I know some of you have ill feelings toward Him.  But, I'm here to tell you that he is still in the healing business.  He will never leave us nor forsake us.  We have to learn patience and faith.  There is a story of a woman in the bible that had an issue of blood for 12 years!  12 years!  That's a long time.  She'd been sick for some time and had seen many doctors without success.  But, one day she touched Jesus's clothing and she was healed.  Now, it wasn't just the fact that she touched him.  It was her FAITH in knowing that God will heal her.  So, we have to have the same faith.  Was I angry with God about my "condition" in the past.  Yes!  Do I sometimes feel as though he doesn't hear my cry?  Yes!  But, then I remember what he's already blessed me with.  Then I look at other people who suffer so much greater things.  Then, I reflect on other times when he's healed my body or my son's when we were sick.  Or when I've kneeled down on my knees and cried out to him and felt like all hope is lost.  Then, he shows up and "fixes" my situation where there was no way out.  I will not give up on Him as he did not give up on me.  I know it seems this burden we bare is hard sometimes.  But lets remember the burden He bared for us, which is a lot greater.  He died a horrible death and suffered very much, just so that we might have eternal life.  I'm not trying to preach a sermon or anything.  But, I've dealt with this thing for a looooong time now.  But, it hasn't beaten me.  I refuse to let it take over my life.  I believe everything happens for a reason and in His own time.  If God had of healed me a long time ago, then I would not have known that I wasn't alone.  I wouldn't have the opportunity to let you all know of his greatness and share how we are all going to overcome this.  I truly believe that we go through some things that we don't understand just to see his glory and to know he can do anything.  We are put on this earth to serve Him and that's what I'll do till the day I die.  Now, saying all that here is what I believe... I am no doctor, but this is what I think we need to do.

I feel it is some sort of parasite thing.  I purchased a kit at an herbal store for a parasite cleanse.  Plus, I've prayed about this again.  Everyday I will pray for deliverance for all of us.  I will keep positive thinking and trusting God for his healing.  I will keep you all posted.  Keep the Faith!!

Are you sure it is from a parasite? In my opinion, it could be something like a tumor in our body that is causing these abnormalities. This is just my opinion.

What do you guys think of this?  I came across it:

Histamine, High Cell Permeability And Allergies
      "Histamine is a biochemical which normally occurs in all soft tissues of the body." In
excessive amounts, histamine produces many of the common symptoms associated with allergies,
such as a running nose, sneezing, hives, etc. Individuals who exhibit a pattern of fast oxidation,
as determined by a hair analysis, tend to release excessive amounts of histamine into their tissues
principally due to an excessive tissue protein breakdown. High histamine levels, whatever the
cause, increase one's proneness to allergies.
      Cell permeability refers to the ability of substances to enter and exit the permeable
membranes of body cells. Along with higher histamine levels, a fast oxidizer's cellular membranes
are more permeable, usually due to a calcium deficiency. An increased permeability of the cell
membranes allows increased amounts of histamine to be liberated into the surrounding tissues
resulting in an increased allergic reaction.

I too suspect it has something to do with excessive histamines in our body. Vit C and MG can reduce histamine. Maybe try these?

As Vitamin C rids the body of excess histamine it would be fair to surmise that people who have a continuing presence or increased levels of histamine are either not getting enough Vitamin C through their diet or supplementation or they are allergic to it and in many casese both are probable true. Interestingly, Mg is also needed to reduce histamine levels.

Hey guys, whats going on. Hope all is well. Few developments. First off, I've noted a handful of people I've come into close contact with becoming very ill. Or persistently coughing.

  Recently, I visited my roommates house, his mother sneezed and coughed in my presence. (In arkward moments like these I've learned to psychologically divert the attention away quickly). A few days later, he informed me that his mom was sick and that she contracted a fever and a flu...... It gets better.

  Now he's sick. Coughing throughout the day, spitting up blood and mucus. His best friend he introduced me to is also sick now.... I probably have the worst case of all in this forum.

  If you're speculative, be my guest, just know that I don't just make up this stuff in my spare time. I have formed tons of other "correlating theories", so if you're interested grab a spoon and dig in.

  Disclaimer: Everything I say have been tested and formed by
              my personal "correlating" evidence, I just
              put the pieces together as i experience it.
              Just as a patient tells his doctor his
              symptoms, there is no one whom I can
              approach with this, so I am my own experimentor.
              I destroy every writing on paper, it's funny, my
              roommate caught me tearing up paper lastnight and
              he thought it was love notes I wrote for my
              x-girlfriend. We had a horrible argument.
              Guess what it was about. Read on.

Theories: Someone around you is thinking about you (good or bad
          I do not know). This idea is said to be a Japanese
          belief. I've proven it numerous times.
        
          The person sneezing or coughing may be harboring
          strong emotions of anger, hate, or love toward you.
          For example sake, I was doing my math homework in my
          professors Literature class, he saw me and was
          obviously upset. When he turned away to continue
          his lecture, he coughed.

          The girl I broke up with lives next door to my
          dormroom. Everytime she she passes by she coughs.

          (Part of the reason we let it go was because I was
          painfully shy, I couldnt look at her, she's
          beautiful, whenever I talked to her I wouldn't look
          at her, whenever I would knock on her door I would
          run down the hall then wave to her. It was painful
          hearing her cough or sneeze around me, it hurt.
          The only time I'm not shy or dont care about the
          allergies thing is when I'm angry. Sometimes I
          would try to get angry).......back to the theories.

          There is this pretty girl in the back of my Math
          class that always coughs violently whenever
          I came in, I sit in front... I just learned that she
          likes me!!??

          Or quite simply, you don't smell too inviting. In my
          case, wearing and using fragrance-free products leaves
          you with an unpleasant smell when you start perspiring
          "some said I smelt like outside, or you stink".
          Using some aveeno fragrance-free products, someone
          said I smelt like feet.
          It may seem harsh, but I cherished it and stopped
          using it during the day, only at nighttime.
          Don't know companies would pay millions for genuine
          survey data.

          Perhaps you made a u-turn and started using fragranced
          products. Personally, using the right amount and
          smelling just right helped 10 times better. After
          years of praying for the right underarm deodorant,
          I found it a few months ago and plan to use it
          forever. It's called "Almay fragrance-free deodorant
          gel". This is definitely one is G_d sent. cause it's
          what i was crying out for.

          I'd also advise bathing with liquid "softsoaps" over
          conventional bars. Go to the store and smell all of
          them, buy some. That's right buy a fragranced, liquid
          "soft-soap". And your favorite smelling cream to
          compliment it, remember use it lightly, just enough.

          Strangely and most significant of all my finds, some
          people just look at me and start to sneeze or cough.
          Even from far away. I just don't know. Some kind of
          sphere around me or something. I just don't know.

          I use to live in a Caribbean island. When I was
          younger, me and my friend skipped school and went
          to the beach. You would always know you swam too
          far out when your waist down was entangled with
          sea-weed. So I turned around and tried walking
          towards the shore, suddenly I stepped on a black
          sea-egg, I swam to shore scared to death.

          While laying on the sand bed these black needle-like
          things were in my feet. I was too afraid to take
          them out. A rastafarian walking by stopped and helped
          me, and looked at me seriously and told me someone
          would have to **** on my feet for it to come out.
          I said nevermind. I shouted and detered them  
          from carrying me to the hospital. I was just too
          scared to go to their hospital.
        
          My friend helped me put on my shoes and we went
          home. I told no one, after a while it disappeared.
          Was I poisoned? Could this have affected me??

          Perhaps it could be that we have different physical
          energies, because of loneliness, and other feelings
          that triggers the mind to release these chemicals to
          protect us.
          
          When I was "shy" growing up, I noticed whenever I
          was in certain situations; my eyes would water, a
          year later it changed to my eyelids flickering, then
          having to swallow my spit, could this thing we have
          now be a defense mechanism that is given off when
          we we're threatened.

          Someone brought up the idea of it being caused by
          "Histamines", brilliant, brilliant find. I'm studying
          it right now. Certain foods give off or suppressed
          histamines. Good work.

          I was actually writing and editing this in a
          Mcdonalds. Once I turned around and just looked at
          this guy in his eyes, he coughed. I said "oh sh*t".
          Another guy passed by my seat and he coughed!!??
          I was already seated so there was no way he could've
          been affected by me.
          Bye guys. I leave this for a while, got exams coming
          up. Peace.

Hello all,

It's been a while since I started this forum.  I was hoping that the second time I write here, I'd have some good news to share. Sadly I don't.  I share the same feelings, experiences, and theories as I'm sure many of you do.  I've recently had a blood test with my doctor telling me that I'm completely normal...great.  This is driving me crazy.  I now analyze every little thing that happens to me.  
It seems that all I have left are philosophies.  I don't know.  I'm really close to calling it quits some times.  I just wish things could go back to how they were a few years ago.  Life seemed a lot simpler then.

Question: Has anyone else noticed that along with the coughing and sneezing that we cause, people also yawn?  This sounds really weird, but it's almost as if my energy sucks the health out of people around me.  

Well, I'm sorry that I have nothing worth adding in this forum and I'm happy for all of your input.  The only thing that gives me comfort is knowing that there are others out there that share this horrible plague.

Good luck to all of you- i will continue to check this forum periodically and will of course update you all if any progress is made.

Also, if anyone would like to drop a line: ***@****
it's be cool to exchange information

Hi All,

Well I tried that parasite cleanse, but I couldn't stick with it.  It was too harsh and made me have to go to the bathroom if you know what I mean.  So, I stopped it.  Well, things are still the same. I keep praying everyday that we will be cured of this.  Yeah, I noticed that I seem to suck the energy out of people too.  It's like we can sit there and have a good conversation and they start to yawn and talk about how tired they feel.  It's very heartbreaking to know I am the cause of it.  Yesterday at the gas station I went to pay the lady working there and she started rubbing her nose and eyes.  Then, she started yawning.  I hate it so much!  I too have nothing positive to say, but hang in there guys.  I'm staying in prayer over this.

Hi,

You guys cleared out Glutin Allergy tests?

Well, I think it is a dietery thing. It all started for me when I switched my diet to Italian (Previously I used to eat rice based diets). May it is allergic to me bcos of pasta (which may have glutin?!).

I am sure my problems started from that point. Still now, I don't I am allergic to glutin and I am going to have that test soon. So please feel free share your dietery habits too.

Initially I am confused that it's some kind originates from my body that causes irritability but well, that is not the case.

It something kind of invisible energy emanates from the body which causes that sensation (like cough, snezze and irritation on eyes) in others and at this point of time I think may be due to glutin allergy?

Happy Holidays to everyone. Hopefully Santa remembered to pack our cures! I'm turning 20 tomorrow and Christmas is almost here.

And about that allergy issue, it's the sphere or "bubble" that surrounds us. Energies that surround us humans, ive come to the conclusion. yin __ yang. imbalances, "emotions" is powerful than you think.

Correlating evidence plus one of the most important finds happened to me personally yesterday. This is fascinating, don't you guys think. I mean yea offcourse most of the time it gets to you.

But just like it has its bad, there has to be some kind of unique perhaps "super natural" benefit from this.

Guys, try to think of us as some new X-MEN who doesn't yet know how to control his newfound powers. I dont think we're x-men but what we have or suffer from should no longer be looked in the bad light all the time, there has to be something i cant explain that is secretly cool about this. what if?

i will find it. but i will not say it on a forum, too dangerous.  just a few more words.

there is mentioning in the bible of G_d cursing some with "incurable", "unexplainable" illnesses. I dont know.

And yea, i forgot to tell u guys that i also have polyps, which ive had since about age 17. Nobody knows i have it. its funny, once i was getting a check up and our family doctor spotted it. I pleaded with her not to tell my family and she didn't. she made me promise to get it checkd out, but its really hard because of where polyps reside, no pun intended. its a symptom of colon cancer depending on whether the polyps is malignant or benign.
Hey, maybe our body is trying to let us know we have somthing in us when other people sneeze in our presence.  

Everything though is going wrong in my life, lost everything, lost my love, lost my past self. instead of hanging it up, ive decided to give it one last courageous push, i will reconstruct myself.

if i dont speak to u guys again jus want to let yall know u guys are the bomb. been a pleasure. find out what your fear is and go live there, fight for whatever you want, save som energy for that one last push, u owe it to yourself for suffering much.
peace and lov guys. lov your family hug em every time u get too. sniffy.                listen to frank sinatra, put your dreams away.

Internal energies. Everything is linked in terms of energies. Study the teachings of Dr. Wayne Dyer "The Power of Intention", go to a local library and get it.
Recently, my road bicycle was fixed by a mechanic a week ago,everything worked smoothly. Now, knowing the energies that were supposedly around me at one point after an argument, I walked in the room where my bicycle was parked and the tires popped for no apparent reason. lol!

I too have the same problem.  People start sniffling, sneezing and rubbing their eyes.  I too get symptoms.  I believe this problem has to do with dust and lint.  When people are aroung me they complain that it is dusty.  When I sniff my clothes my nose and throat becomes irritated.  I do not know the cause of my problem, but I believe it has something to with clotes, laundry and me.

I am too a sufferer like u all. We are all sailing in the same boat. I am also a member of another similar forum. I just wish to request u all that I may have some good news for all but I am still testing this simple remedy on myself. It might lead us all to total freedom. So please don't despair and hang on. I just don't want to give it to you before confirming it myself. As we all know that some remedies work but only for some time and then we are back to square one. Please give me some time and this might become the answer to all our prayers. I beg to God that this be it. Thanks and God Bless us all.

Maybe we are part of some governmental experiment. Some unknown chemical has been placed in our systems and we are being watched by a gov agent to see what effect we have on others. Just a crazy thought that came to my head. Sounds good for a thriller novel.   I've also have tried everything in the books too clear this problem. I sometimes go to crowded places and walk up and down an area to see how many people start sneezing, coughing, etc. The results are amazing. HOPE WE FIND A SOLUTION SOON. GOD BLESS.

very interesting md. another thing i forgot to mention is, if I were to sleep less than 5 hours a night, the symptoms seems to be ten times worst as opposed to if I slept for longer. Also, some chemical seems to be in my jeans too, or my iron. And/Or it may be that they have "psychogenic coughs" while you've entered into their presence.

This is a fascinating thread.  I've been struggling with this problem for 26 years, and I know that I give off a bad smell at times, even though I am scupulously clean, bath every day, wear clean clothes every day, wash my hear every day.  I used to smother myself with body spray and perfume, but that didn't help, didn't even mask the smell.  Like I say, for 26 years I've been wracking my brains, trying to find an answer.  What intrigues me now, reading this thread, is the 'energy' thing that someone mentioned.  There could be something in this and I'd love to hear others' experiences.  For instance, light bulbs blow all the time around me.  The radio gets so much interference that I've stopped listening to it.  Watches stop after I've worn them for just a few weeks.  I don't bother wearing a watch now.  Has anyone else noticed this type of thing?

Yes, I've noticed the energy thing too.  I shock people a lot or get shocked a lot.  Also, I noticed the interference on the radio sometimes too.  Once I wore a magnetic bracelet because I heard it was supposed to help migraines... I noticed everyone's symptoms around me were much worse.

I've emailed Samantha Williams who is making that programme.  I'll post here if I get a reply.  And yes, when I post I get the message that this thread is no longer available, or is no longer current, and yet the messages are still going on it.  That's probably why there are so many doubled up posts.

What I've noticed about the people posting on this thread is that they all seem to be very caring - more worried about other people and how they are affected.  I've been reading about oxygen therapies and colloidal silver.  I'll be giving those a try and will you all know how I get on.

wats.wrong.wit.me are u serious?! that same thing happened in my perimeter with my past x-girlfriend. we came from a walk, she coughed during the walk as usual. when we got back to our dorm, we sat down. then all of a sudden she just had this look on her face and ran inside, i was shocked, when she came back out, she apologized and said she wasnt feeling good and that she had to throw up!! Another personal thing i must say, when we use to kiss or make out or what have you, she use to always say that i make her "emotional" because she got goosebumps all the time! wow!!! omg. i cant take it anymore lol! simply amazing.

You seem to toute a "psychic" as a solution, ive learned that all of em r basically fake, in my psycholgy course for instance, the professor taught us their tactics and tricks that persuade the uninformed. Their readings are only generalizations that can fit any person.

The coughing and sneezing in others has stopped, not sure how I got cured. I've had this odor/allergic condition for 2 years now. The only thing I've tried new is the lime enema every 3rd day and one glass of red wine daily.

Hi all,

I think I also have something like many of you have. My "odor" causes people to cough, snort, and blow their nose. It's as though it causes mucous to build up in their nose and throat. It can also reach very far, and affect people 20 metres away in a bus, train or shopping centre.

I have pretty sticky sweat, and when I have a shower I always use a cloth or a loofah to scrub the stickiness off. It's no cure but it helps. I don't scrub the groin area too hard because that seemingly makes it worse. Also rinse thoroughly, make sure all the soap comes off.

I think eating less meat may help, but I'm not sure. I'm in the process of losing as much weight as possible. I'll be a stick man if that does anything to reduce the odor. I'm also trying to drink lots of water, and some freshly squeezed lemon juice each day. These could help clean out the internal organs, in case they are damaged or clogged with toxins.

Mdmystery, I'm interested in the red wine and lime enemas... how did you hear about these techniques?

I'm learning not to be too upset by the odor, and just accept it as part of me. The odor is with you for the time being, and you can't control that, but you can control whether you let it upset you. It has taken me 5 years to figure this out. Just remember, it's not your fault this happened, so you can't justify hating yourself for it. If you knew how to fix it, you would fix it without a second thought, right? Don't feel guilty.

So for those of you that are working .. do people around you keep coughing all day? I mean I have a bad cough for the past week or so. But never relate that to any employee at work. I walk out of my office and home and keep rubbing my nose because I have allergies. But I don't believe its because of someone who is 20 metres away from me. How is that possible? After reading your forum, on my way home from work yesterday I observed people and found about 60% people rub their eyes and nose. Maybe its just natural. Maybe you guys are thinking too much of nothing. People all over the world fall sick, throw up and are allergic to something or the other. Why do you want to take the blame on yourself? If you are maintaing proper hygeine, that is all you can do.

Wow, i've gone 13 days now with no allergic reactions from others. I'm going into crowded areas to see if other people start sneezing, coughing, having headaches and I'm amazed there is no reactions to me as I've had over the past 2 miserable years.

I now think my problem was a digestive issue. My colon was not properly processing the foods i took in. These un-expelled foods were becoming toxic waste in my system and causing the alleric odor. Just recently I read in another forum about the drug "Dicetel". This drug is suppose to help the colon better expelle foods from our systems. It seemed to help the forum writer greatly. I may try this if my problem pops up again.

For now I'm using a lime/lemon enema every 3 or 4 days & 1 small glass red wine. Enema's are a great health procedure if done properly. I use only 4 ozs of warm distilled water mixed with 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon/lime juice.(w/out the seeds). The emema cleans out whatever toxic waste that has made it into my rectum area. The red wine may create a relaxing of the colon and flushing of the toxins. Pure Cranberry juice was mentioned in another forum and may be a better alternative to the red wine for some. I've not tried the cranberry juice, so not sure if it will work.

Also I belive the prayers that were requested by sparrow on new years was answered for me. Hope this helps someone.

Mdmysyery,

Thanks for the info. I'm a chicken about enemas but I guess I shouldn't give up until I try it. :) I will try drinking some cranberry juice first. Yeah I do think it's a digestive problem as well. Other... ahem... bodily fluids of mine are chronically smelly when I eat meat, and I hypothesise that a weak or damaged digestive system is the common cause. Still, the best way to let it heal is to eat healthy and be fit, which I'm working on currently. I'm eating very little meat. The odor seems to go down a little bit if I do some hard exercise regularly. I hypothesise this is the result of sweating toxins out of the body, not leaving them in the pores.


Sneezy 2,

I've never come across anyone in my whole life with this condition, except on the internet. A few people seem to have it on BO forums such as

Is there any doctor reading this, if yes please have some compassion, and help. It all started in mid-80's, people around me started scratching their noses, some sneezed. I knew there was something wrong, went to doctors, ent's, churches, but nothing helped. I started drinking a lot after that. Years latter, I started getting hallusinations, and became delusional. Was put on medication, but because of my drinking, they did not work. I quit drinkink in June 2006, the hallusinations and dellusions are gone. I was all excited, I got myself a job (unpaid), it lasted two weeks, 4 out of 7 co-workers started ittiching their noses, they started sneezing, and a young lady started getting rash on her face. I was devestated, I had to leave. Even if I go to church, some people there start getting sick. I have been living in isolation for the last decade, I stopped drinking, started going out, but now I'm back in my hole.
What can I do, where should I go for help. Please help me become a normal productive person. I am a clean and God fearing person. Now I know that I'm not alone.

Hi everyone.  Other than posting a question yesterday -- this is the first time I have posted a comment here.

First of all, I want to say that I can't believe there are other people out there like me who suffer with this same condition -- and I am soooo grateful for finding this forum.  I too, thought I was alone.  

If I allow myself, I'm sure the floodgates of my emotions will poor out with many examples of how I've been so embarrassed or how I've felt so isolated over this whole thing.

I can relate with practically every word everyone has said.  The symptoms I notice in others when I am around them are very similar -- itchy and/or runny nose, sneezing and sometimes watery eyes.  I also notice that this allergen I possess seems to carry, or travel, for long distances (a neighbor across the street always sneezed when I was out in the yard).  My husband even sneezes (usually three times) when we are speaking to each other over the phone.  This, I find impossible to believe (that I am the cause), but you have to wonder.  He says maybe its just my voice that makes him sneeze.

I can also relate to how this has affected each and every single aspect of life.  From going out to dinner and making people sneeze in the restaurant, to riding in a car with someone who keeps apologizing because "my allergies must be kicking up" to working with people who sneeze when they are around you to family members who sneeze -- to attending church where everyone is sneezing there too.  Its really hard to understand the impact unless you've experienced it yourself and no one knows how truly devastating it can be.

I even spoke with a doctor about this and she didn't seem to believe me (even though she sneezed soon after I explained my special talent).  She did refer me to an allergist (I figured I may be allergic to something that in turn was making me be an allergen).  I did see the allergist and was tested.  If I recall correctly, I was allergic to tomatoes, mangos, beef, cat dander, certain pollens and trees/grasses.  I also explained my dilema to the allergist and he did provide me with allergy shots twice weekly. It did seem to help but I never could explain why.  I moved out of state after about 3 months of allergy shots and never resumed shots with another allergy doctor.

I too have tried everything to figure out the source.  I can't even tell you how many times (at work, church, you name it) that I practically took a bath in the ladies room to rid myself of whatever this allergen to others was.  

My hygiene is not the cause. I shower or bathe at least once or twice a day, I brush my teeth maybe three times a day and do all the hygienic things everyone else does regularly.  I wash my clothes after each wear and my home is spotless.

My current feeling on the cause of this is similar to some of your ideas - poor digestion.  My personal theory is that somehow I either don't have enough of some enzyme (or too much of some enzyme) that helps in the digestive process.  I think maybe the odor (or digestive gases) comes back up through the mouth and/or possibly is excreted through the skin.  I also notice that when I cut back on eating meat (and also on milk products that create more mucus) that it isn't quite as bad.  I also believe that regular exercise helps too.  Together, a good diet and exercise does seem to help.  I have also been taking two caplets of a digestive enzyme that has ox bile and this seems to help.  It doesn't last all day (I have to take them whenever I eat anything); but, it seems to be the product that has worked best for me.

My mother one day gave me some advice that was simple but absolutely true and that was, "You have got to live in this world too."  That has helped me handle this better - realizing that I do deserve to be happy even with this problem. I just do everything I can to keep my physical hygiene at its optimum and to eat healthy.  I can't really do any more than that.

I got to this site via google. Believe it or not I was just looking for anything that could help me. I keyed in people are allergic to me and was so surprised to se that there is so many of you that are plaqued by this. For me it has been at least three years now and it has gotten worse since then. I als o get people to cough , sneeze, runny nose in some instances they are continually clearing their throats. Some have actually complained of the air suddenly becoming dry.Here is what I have noticed for me it is not every-one who gets sick. It is worse on those that have a prior condition like flu, tonsilitis, chet or lung problems and people who smoke. I do not know if any of you notice a simmilar pattern.
I want to believe that diet might have something to do with it. I started noticing this shortly after I became a vegeterian, I must admit I did not take care of myself at all did nt pay enough attention as I should have on what I ate.I think that was what messed me up.
I find the condition gets worse when I miss meals.I have a history of problems with gluten too.
I have heard my fair share of worrying about the people around me. I have also considered isolating myself and more.
Ther is something else though that I have noticed. If I take my mind of it when in public I do not hear the sniffles and the coughs. The moment I remember that people will react it just starts like magic.

I believe there is a reason for everything. Read Romans 8:28. God loves us, He loves those people that we affect as well. He will deliver us and them too. Cast all your burdens upon the Lord and He will sustain you. I believe, for those of you who have not yet given your lives to Him it is a way for you to seek Him. He will heal all of us only if we just do away with the fear and just believe. There is hope guys Jesus is alive.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well you can count me in as someone who suffers from this bizarre condition.  

I have had it for quite awhile.  Mine is nasal-like conditions such as coughing, sneezing, post nasal drip ect.  When Im sweating, very hot or very cold, or wet from a shower or swimming is when I notice Im outgassing something that is causeing reactions in others.  I too react to myself.

I have told doctors and been referred to shrinks.  I did have one doctor who said it sounded like I was outgassing something from my body/stomach.  

I have never mentioned this to a soul but I swear over the years I too have noticed that I can affect someone as well while talking on the phone.  I can understand affecting someone a distance away.  But to affect someone over the phone?  Yeah I know it sounds crazy and I have always wondered until I have read this message board.  This is beyond weird.  Im relieved and scared at the same time. Honestly.

Oh by the way I contacted the Center for Disease Control years ago and I was told it was impossible to have these symptoms.  I wrote them a letter.  Maybe some admin responded to it and no one actually took my letter serious.

Okay so there is power in numbers and I don't know how any doctor or medical instituiton can think we are all suffering from hallucinations/delusions.  

What can we all do to document this and get someone to reseach it.  

Anyone have any suggestions?

I have this condition bad, and I know what it's like being told by dishonest people (which is almost everyone) that you have no odor despite the fact that they cough and snort. But over the telephone? I think you might just be sensitive to people coughing because you're so used to hearing it. I doubt it's spiritual, because the smell changes when you have a shower right? For better or worse... (my hair especially stinks when it's wet).

Oh, and I'm curious about this... does anyone else notice that when you shower, if you scrub your body really hard with a stiff brush or your fingernails, the coughing/snorting gets worse? Also, spray-on deodorant really makes people's noses dribble. Roll-on not so much.

The best thing for me to reduce the odor is to shower with a soft cloth and bar soap, and don't scrub too hard. A bit of sweet smelling after shave liquid or lotion also masks the (faint) dirty smell without making the coughing/snorting worse.

Can everyone please comment on health conditions they have had, even before the allergic odor? The best way to find the cause is to gather as much data as possible, and although this is not a rigorous scientific test, it's a start. Also include if you have an unusual lifestyle (see my point 7). I will begin:

AGE: 23
SEX: Male
COUNTRY: Australia
ETHNICITY: White, Scandinavian
SYMPTOMS:
1) I've been an anxious and serious person my whole life, always worrying about everything. I have hardly ever laugh. My psychiatrist said I probably have depression, in which case, I've have had it since before the odor...
2) I've been either moderately overweight or obese most of my life, and found it very hard to lose it and keep it off.
3) I am a bit low on testosterone. I'm within the normal range, but on the low end. I'm not physically masculine or aggressive, I'm extremely docile. My voice only slightly and gradually deepened at puberty, it didn't "crack."
4) (sorry if it's "gross") My semen really stinks if I eat a lot of meat. I mean, it's chronic, and travels far. It's fine if I don't eat much meat, though.
5) I have thin, easy-to-pull-out hair.
6) The grains on my fingernails are not straight.
7) I spend most of my time inside. Hardly ever get sunlight. Pale skin.

hi all,WOW!! I've been enjoying my new freedoms from the cursed allergic odor. After 2 years of suffering and worrying about the pains I brought on others, I feel like i'm cured from this problem. It has been 1 month now.  I now go into many public places and sit or stand next to people and there is no coughing, sneezing, rubbing of nose, etc. My family members don't have any allergic reactions as before.

I'm still using the lemon enema every 4 days now and 1 glass of red wine every other day. I sometimes do feel like I have a little odor/gas sitution(to much dairy or red meat products) coming on,I will  do a enema as soon as possible to cure the sitution. It works like a miracle for me. I would like to know if anyone else has been able to try this and what their results were. I will say that the enema process was hard to get use to at first, but when I read up on enemas and the proper procedure/health benefits, I have become more comfortable doing it. The benefits for me have been tremendous. Also I thank God for curing me on a daily basis.

I am wondering if your enema worked because of the lemon.  They say lemon with water helps your Ph become more alkaline.  

I am going to get some PH strips at my local health store and test.  

I wonder if the symptoms go off the charts when are bodies are more acidic.........

Also to the other poster that said he also had a cure but was waiting for more time to confirm.  Any update yet?

i believe i have what is called "the evil eye" as well?!
I am a very strange guy indeed, i agree.

Everyone! I mean almost everyone I come in contact with are getting these strange diseases. Even mere eye contact with me makes people start coughing,HICCUP,even on the phone. Somehow people dont sneeze anymore they cough or hiccup, or itch.

For example, I was talking to someone on the phone on Tuesday night for about 20 minutes, when she called the very next day she was coughing, i asked her what was wrong and she said she was sick?  

My barber that i visit regularly on said on Thurday he had a stomach virus?out of the blue?? my roommate went to the doctor cuz he thinks he has pnuemonia,been coughing and coughing for wayy too long now. I could give you a hundreds of examples to confirm.

I also eat alot of mayonnaise with my food im thinking whether or not it could be that, the eggs in it?..
  Do u guys think if we would be allergic to each other too??

When I was younger I stepped on a black sea urchin laying in sea weed on the beach. Apparently i guess i went too far out. i dont remember takin the black pin-like needles out of my feet, they disappeared. ????  

Could the black sea urchins needle poisoned me??Cuz those things look very mysterious.

I also have people allergic to me. I know when they're about to cough because a feel a sensation in my scalp. I can feel the odor or hormone radiating from my scalp and shortly after 1 or more people will start to cough or clear their throat. My psychiatrist says its all in my head.

I suffer from the same problem too.
no one believes me - (family members). i am not sure if they smell me or have gotten used to it. In fact they told me that my clothing had some smell to it, and it took me a long time to figure out it was me. Now , they act as if there is no smell, but everywhere i go its a nightmare -coughing fits - the works..

My discoveries so far:
1. test #1 smell your armpits everyday. They have to be putrid. If you cannot smell bad odor from armpits, it probably is your imagination. To make it smell real bad, eat cake, high fat junk food for 1 meal. Wait 1 /2 hrs,. Your armpits should stink - don't try this in public. do at home. I know how to make it worse therefore -- so I can try avoid these foods but it doesn't eliminate smell.

2. See doctor if you have stomach problems. GERD is something you should have if you stink - at least I have it. I also tested for H Pylori negative. I was counting on this being the problem, but I don;t have H pylori...

3. Since I know for sure I have GERD (confirmed by 2 doctors). My next step is to cure this..The PPI's they prescribed did not work.

4. I am taking zinc tablets again, and chlorophyll - these help somewhat.

5. My last try recently is promising. It sounds silly but acid cider vinegar with honey and baking soda (google GERD home remedy). seems to be working. I could swear I smell less.

I will have to wait at least a week to confirm this.. If anyone wishes to try this inexpensive home remedy please do - ..(make sure that you mix it with water and baking soda though).

As observer thinks,

I too also think this problem is something got related to GERD. Doctors confirmed me that I have a problem with GERD and I have been taking medicines since 3 years without any sucess. I am sure GERD leaves unplesant odour sometimes but I wonder why a guy far away could feel something strange? I feel something like a energy orginates from my body and goes hit him and people started coughing, sctraching, snezzing etc.,

Since last week I tried taking the enema(a readymade product available in my city and not with lemon as someone suggested since I cannot find that instrument here) and dicetal as someone suggested and as usual without any sucess or any major improvement.

Do you people feel something strange on the upper part of stomach (esophogus)? But I never get heartburn.

Have you guys able to use perfumes?

Do you guys breath well?

Are you guys able to do Gym activities as normal?

In summer, Do you guys feel very tired?

Do you guys have always disturbed stomach?

Feel with personal experience (not what others feel and that's what we most times do) and come back to this forum.

Wish all guys get well soon,

Holy

I can relate to these symptoms.

The sad part is that people crinkle their noses and really don't know what is going on.  They claim their allergies are acting up.  It is true, it is us, we are the allergen.  In the advanced cases, we cause these people to throw up, have Diarrhea and then develop IBS and other bowel problems.  On two occasions people I have worked with end up in the hospital with phenomina and almost dying.  I am symptom free with no fever or anything.

I have always had sinus problems.  I have taken many antibiotics over the years.  They don't help.  I have a 6 mm oval calcified lymph node near my heart.  I have sinusitus with green yellow phlegm and blood streaks.  Negative to TB test twice.  I have Gastritus, GERD, insomnia and the depression anxiety you would expect. Wegners Granulatus is the closest I can come to for a diagnosis. Enough history.

This is what I think is happening.  You develop a viral infection in your sinus.  The common cold.  The body fights it and clears it.  Sometimes though the infection lingers and becomes cronic.  The body initiates inflmation.  Much mucus is produced in the intestines and nasal area.  This is where bacteria, viruses, mold and fungal infections live.  Nasal polyps develop and the correct flow of mucus is plugged in the sinus.    Bacteria flourish. I think staph aures is the prime ofender.  It lives is salt environment.It causes no temperature.

You have food allergies and the toxins of undigested food lingering in the body.  That is the terrible smell we experience. We sweat so easily 24/7 because the body wants to expell the toxins.

All of you have these theories of what could be wrong and frankly they make sense. How come non of you got the doctors to agree with you or even come up with what is wrong? Also, mdmystry used Anema and is doing good. Someone else suggested they had a solution too which they were testing. I think it is gas or gerd or something that is causing the allergic reaction. But people having IBS and throwing up is something you are imagining. They might just have a stomach bug or something.

Just an update to what I have been trying:
A tablespoon of Apple Cider vinegar, about a teaspoon of baking soda in a
glass of water mixed with some honey.

I have not got the results I was hoping for - for one I my GERD is not gone.
However, people were responding far milder to me than before.
And yes I am convinced it is a smell. Not a continuous smell like someone living on the streets, say. But a very bad smell that is emitted in pulses. Like every other minute or so. This smell travels very far in the air and affect people very far away - like across the block etc.
I think somehow my stomach is not digesting certain types of food - high fat food/baked goods/ etc and this undigested food flows up my stomach (GERD symptoms)
with the stomach acid and a rotten stench emanates. Like I said, I know how to make it so bad that I can smell a horrendous smell from my armpits.
I am completely healthy otherwise, I can run walk anything I am young too -thirties. I have lost weight - am very skinny (even though i was naturally thin) due to this problem. I had stomach pains when eating almost anything. After some failed treatment from the doctor (PPI) I was able to reduce the problem by eliminating certain foods. Right now not so much stomach problems though I still have GERD and the stomach gurgles quite a lot in the morning. The apple cider vinegar actually stopped this gurgle when I took it.

I am begging everyone with this problem to try this remedy. The worst that can happen is nothing - as long as you dilute the vinegar with water and baking soda and not overdose. I suspect that this in conjunction with the 'right' diet will stop this problem. The trick is what is the right diet? Avoid fatty foods, spicy food, red meat etc. But its easier said than done.

So far, I have experienced promising results - I don't work in an office everyday (thankfully) but I do have to from time to time. And this time when i went to the office  (after taking the vinegar - I also had a bottle of this stuff that i drank in the office) it was not as bad as before. I got a few coughs from the people around me.
Just to be more detailed, my breakfast was water, plain followed by the brew of acv mixed bsoda and water. Then I ate oatmeal. I think I might have even had a cup of coffee (which is bad). Then for lunch I had a cuban half a sandwich plus chicken noodle soup. No soda. I drank water and some of that brew again.
(In all I only had 2 tablespoons of ACV ) For one hour at least I was cured! No one coughed. But then a few hours after, I was feeling hungry and the coughing around me started. It could be the stomach acid (and other stomach contents) flowing up that is causing this. If I had got another meal and more ACV ( I was out) I think I would have been ok. So compared to my previous horrendous experience in the office ( a week prior where everyone coughed almost continuously), this was a substantial improvement.


So my conclusions: if your stomach is empty - you will smell more. Especially if your last meal was high fat junk food.
If you eat lean meat food with the ACV you smell less. The trick is to completely eliminate the odor.
Also I agree some people seem to have an allergic reason and are not sure if its a smell. Different people react differently - it probably is toxins given off by the body, and the reaction varies.

So Please anyone try this remedy and avoid: Cake, red meat, alcohol, smoking - practically.
Eat only vegetables, food, chicken breast





I will report in two weeks - hopefully something changes.

I too attract odors to me.  Like cigarette smoke or someone's cologne.  Not always but I have been lately.......  Food related, hormone related,problems with metabolism, or all of the above could be the reasons for our outgassing and odor problems.

I have an appointment with a GI doctor next week.  

I will let you know what we find out.......

In the mean time some suggestions for everyone on this board.  

EFT
Z Point Process (you can find it on Google video)  
Prayer
Know that this problem does not define who you are.  Love yourself always.


I truly believe there is more to this world than what we see.

so my advice? go about doing your thing everyday and learn to get over what people are thinking about you and what they are doing around you... if you continue doing things your way... over time, it will begin to flow naturally and the sniffing won't bother you as much anymore. remember, you can't control people, only yourself. you are ALL beautiful to me, and your strength is what makes you who you are. use that strength and continue living, don't let this minor set back keep you from living your life. we are all in this together!!!

hey guys,

i have the same problem. what i think it is... it is people's way of getting us out of their system ya know. everyone is doing something right...even thinking about something at any given moment. so when they see you, they get distracted and need to sniff deeply to get their mind back on what they were thinking.

with the itching and stuff, i think it is their way of making themselves feel better. like regaining conciousness, a way of helping them focus on whatever they were doing before.

that is what i think. and i think it has something to do with intentions as well...

Finding this forum is a godsend. For over 20 years I have lived with this curse and thought I was the only one. I'm sorry no has found an explanation and a cure for this nightmare. I wish I could provide some hope, but all I can say is I've stuck it out 27 years. Still it hasn't gotten any better, probably worse. I'm just better at avoiding situations where this malady causes severe embarassment. Certain people aren't as sensitive to the allergen and those are the ones I associate with. Unfortunately, in many instances, where people are in close contact with me for extended periods of time they come down with "a sinus infection, a cold, strep throat, or bronchittis". Every day I have to deal with sneezing, throat clearing, coughing, and runny noses due to my presence. I just wish we could find a doctor who believes the problem isn't psychological. Also, during the past 27 years I have lived in different places, used different laundry detergents, bath soaps, etc. so I have ruled these thing out as causes. I do believe diet is involved. Has anyone found a doctor willing to help????????/

Wot up everyone!  I also suffer from this curse.  I started noticing about 3 years ago.  It has been a miserable 3 years.  I quit my last job because every person that sat next to me constantly sneezed and coughed.  I felt bad because the lady next to me was like 70, and I just couldn't take it anymore.  Just started a new job, and on the first day, every person started sneezing/coughing.  I want to quit, but can't.  Need the money really bad.  I definitely cause people to suffer from long distances.  Even on the phone or in cars next to me.  Even when my windows are up and other car's windows are up, the other drivers are rubbing their noses and sneezing.  

Can anyone give advice on how they survive in the workplace?  Let's start documenting this **** and find our cure.  We can then market the cure to the general public and become millionaires.  It will be like climbing a mountain, but we've climbed mountains before.  We can and will do this.  I am willing to create/maintain a spreadsheet of ideas, possible cures, contact information etc.  I am serious, let's do this.  Any takers?

P.S. Sniffy, you are hilarious.  I'm laughing with you, not at you.

There was an entire Tyra Banks show in Feb 2007 about people with allergies like everyone on this forum. She showed a very young teacher who now stays at home because her "odor" makes the children sick - doesn't want to go out of her house. The teacher's presence makes the kids throw up and have stocach virus. Its on her website too.

Have you ever thought about doing a raw food diet for awhile.  Along with a colon cleanse to see if it helps reduce or eliminate the symptoms.

I am doing it right now for the next 2 months myself.

To see the diet and colon cleanse I use go to :

www.thedoctorwithin.com

Hang in there you not alone with this problem.

For me personally I went many years not knowing that there were others who suffered similarly.

Hi Guys

Totally feel for all you people out there sufferring a similar situation to me. I too have the following reactions from people:

-people itch there nose when I come near them
-people rub their nose a large distance from me (i swear even in cars!)
-people breath out loudly through their nose near me

I basically have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) which I have tried every thing to try and overcome but to no avail. Only in the last six months have I noticed this whole nose itching business and it is absolutely driving me crazy!

No matter how many showers I take even using special essential oil soap with no chemicals (basically none of my products have chemicals in them - a tricky thing to do these days!) and still people itch their nose around me.

Doctors are very unsympathetic to things like this as it is beyond their normal training so its really hard to find out how to improve the situation.

The only possible thing I can think of that was the trigger to this itchy nose bizo is that I had three hydrogen breath tests to see if i reacted to certain substances and I had to comsure the following substances:

Fructose
Laclulose
Lactose

Ever since around the time of the test (I can't think of anything else that could trigger it) basically I have had the symptoms mentioned earlier.

If any one has this situation and managed to get over it or improve the situation please email me at david_41225***@****.

Yeah BTW I am around bloke, mid 20's and I am trying to establish my career and get my life in order but right now this situation is absolutely devastating me... it makes me depressed and feel that I can't socialise as people will be affected by me and won't stop rubbing their noses. I am desperate to find a solution... please help me guys. I sometimes feel as if I can't go on if i can't resolve this situation - its really hard some days.

Have you guys tried the apple cider vinegar that I did?

I have become very frustrated with this whole thing. If I venture out anywhere in public at least 90% of people around me start coughing.
I have good news and bad news.
The good news is that if I take the apple cider vinegar before or/and after a meal, I can reduce this effect drastically.
To test I walked in Macys when it was real crowded. instead of the expected 90% of people coughing, only maybe 3-4 people coughed.. I felt almost normal like I was cured!
The bad news is that this 'miracle' wears off in a few hours. I have to take the apple cider vinegar mixed with water and honey again.  I carried around a bottle of this stuff that day, and very little reaction.

Can you guys please try what I did and report if there of any new developments?


Its very important - I think I have the cure, but I am unsure on how many times, and the proper dosage..

To be on the safe side just mix a tablespoon Apple cider vinegar with a glass of water and add a few drops of honey. This seems to have a dramatic effect all the time - but it just wears off after a while..

Are you guys going to try it and report? Its the easiest thing to try so please let me know the results.

Things I want to know - should the dosage be increased ? (increasing it might cause heartburn) - should I take it  more times a day - I take it 3-4 times a day.. so thats only a total of 4 tablespoons.



- you can confirm my 'cure' if you google it -- They say it is the #1 home remedy for GERD.   I don't think it cured my GERD but it does reduce my odor/thing I am giving off.

Nah, you can tell its you - when you walk up to a group of people for a chat and then suddenly half the crowed start rubbing their nose it is pretty obvious it must be you. It really annoys me personally every time this happens b/c I know I still have not solved the problem but we will get there.

Do any of you guys have trouble sleeping as well?? I do!

I was trying to think about this situation laterally and given that I don't think it is a an odour issue (smell) it must be some other chemical being produced by the body in higher levels than normal OR a chemical that is being produced that is not nomally produced.

This led me to think that maybe we could try and get access to one of those machines that CSI's have in their lab that can detect substances in the air (a bit like a electronic nose) and it can detect what chemicals are in the air. This will narrow down the option if a certain chemical is present.
