    Multiple Chemical Sensitivity

    Work With Your Doctor

    Before you spend time and money on specialized treatment, or a home renovation to remove possible triggers, look into the research. It’s natural to want relief. But you want to make sure there’s evidence that shows a medical benefit.

    Avoid tests or treatments that are expensive, unproven, or could cause harm.

    You’ll want to go to a doctor you trust, who is compassionate, and who wants to help you get back to your normal life. Both of you should be cautious but keep an open mind about all the possible causes of your symptoms and the many treatment options. Together, you can find a safe way to feel better.
