Just wondering, since we have a pretty vast group here on the forum and in this section especially. Has anyone else here encountered increased allergies and reactions when undergoing chemotherapy? Nine years ago some medical issues that popped up that called on (among other things) heavy dose of Chemo for 8 months. During that time my family decided to get me a golden retriever puppy (I hadn't had a dog for years, missed the companionship greatly) but couldn't keep him as one day in the house had me in hives and choking That my friends, sucked Never had ANY allergies prior to, Docs said it might just be a side effect from the chemo, happens to some people. Fast forward to present, again I find myself having to do chemo. Problem I'm having now is I can't be in my little workshop for 10 minutes without wanting to claw my eyes out. Started about 2 weeks ago and has gotten progressively worse, FAST. I've scanned through this Wood Allergies and Toxicity | The Wood Database and it would appear that just about every wood I've been using could be the possible culprit Anyone on here have to deal with Chemo or just horrible allergies in general and found themselves having to stay away from certain woods? I Have a few projects in the works right now and I'm currently using Maple Ash Poplar Basswood Oak Indian Rosewood Katalox African Mahogany Honduran Mahogany Spanish Cedar Sapele Any help here would be most appreciated.
