Extreme Sensitivity To Petro-chemical Smells/odors
My wife's abililty to sense/smell petro-chemicals (perfumes, detergents, car exhaust, fertilizers, etc), formaldehyde, etc. is astronomical.  She can detect far more than the average person.  Unfortunately, when encountering many chemicals her lips and tonque will become numb and at times her chest hurts, plus other symptoms.  She has been diagnosed as having MCS (mutiple chemical sensitivites).

She has been told that when she senses these chemicals, it is transmitted to the brain via the olfactory nerve.  Is there any way to desensitize her ability to smell and perhaps reduce her reactions to these chemicals?

Hello
Just saw your post. Not sure what responses you received.
I believe the conditions of your wife are known as Multiple
Chemical Sensitivity or simply MCS. You can search the web
for MCS info. Unfortunately a cure or treatment has not been
developed yet.
Best wishes.
