Im hoping someone can help, my wife has had several sever reactions to cologne.. we think specifically Axe. she starts with a warm feeling on her skin, and lightheadedness but it then progresses to severe lethargy, difficulty moving her limbs, and her speech becomes slurred.. eventually hardly being able to talk at all. We have made 3 trips to the ER over the last year for this... an allergist did give her an epi pen to carry around... but I want to know what info is out there. Is there anything we can do to prevent an attack? Going out into a crowded public place like a concert is becoming difficult for her and we dont know what to do. Any help or info would be greatly appreciatedView Thread
