Hi, I am brand new here & this is my 2nd post. Here is a little bit of my story & I would love some info & advice if you have any to share.
I am a female that just turned 30 yrs old. I have worked at my current job going on 4 years. I have always been super healthy (Praise God) & never had more than a bad cold or flu bug besides some normal seasonal allergies (Ex: runny nose). This past Spring at work they started doing construction in my direct office area so that they could create some more offices for new employees. It is a fairly older building from the early 1960's. Well, even though they tried to use plastic drapes a bunch of dust and particles were in the air all the time. I seemed to feel fine, but I developed a terrible rash in several places & my ears & scalp were super itchy (user name ). As I look back now all of this started the exact same time the construction did. I have been to 3 Dr's and one of them had no idea, the other 2 seem to think it might be caused by gluten. I am now undergoing different medical tests.
They are still doing construction in other areas of the building now, but not directly in my office space. This construction is the only new thing that has changed in my daily life. My big question is: do you think my DH/Gluten rash could have been caused or aggravated by all of this office construction work? I never had any rash issues at home or work before this Spring. Sometimes I think it sounds crazy, but I REALLY think this could be the cause. If this is what is causing the issue I'm not sure if I should ask to be moved to another building?
Thanks for listening & I look forward to hearing your replies.
