Helpful treatments: Some people are hypersensitive to fragrances and this can be a true allergy or simply an irritation. Allergies may be helped by over the counter, non-sedating antihistamines like fexofenadine, Cetirizine and loratadine. Simple irritation would be best handled by rinsing the mouth and throat repeatedly with water or salt water and using moisturizing eye drops like refresh, systane or theratears.
