Smell hallucination?: Olfactory hallucinations can result from head injury, upper respiratory infection (uri), sinusitis, migraine. Phantosmia can also occur with temporal lobe seizures, brain tumor or other neurological disorder. Consult with your doctor or allergist to make sure any allergy symptoms are optimally controlled.

Yes: Repeated exposure to second-hand smoke, both in cars and homes, is associated with nicotine dependence symptoms in non-smokers. Unfortunately, this often happens to children of parents who smoke around them. Years ago non-smoking nurses and doctors would become addicted to second-hand smoke when patients were permitted to smoke inside hospitals (seems strange to imagine these days).
1yr+ shadows on wall behind dryer are actually black mold; intake ambient air = sporesin clothes. Allergy. Symptoms 3+mo. Cleaned safely. What are my risks?
Low risk: Black mold is problematic for people with definitive allergies to the mold but, if you're not allergic to the mold just being in the same room with the mold without disturbing the mold should not pose a health risk. There's a lot of hysteria about "black mold" perpetuated by companies that charge exorbitant prices to eradicate it...it's not a big health risk.
How would a patch test distinguish between a latex allergy and other clothing or fabric allergies?
Reaction to allergen: Patch testing is designed to help identify a potential allergic skin reaction to common suspected allergens. The allergens are applied to the back and covered. 48 hrs later the patches are removed and any reaction noted. A 2nd reading is then performed 24-48hrs later. The intensity and duration of the reaction helps identify positive reactions.

My husbandpants smelled cigarettes&he left them on a chair near towashedcloth wich was drying, can smellof nicotineornicotine itself absorbwashed cloth?
Yes: Nicotine can be absorbed so you should thoroughly wash the item.
Skin allergy: Tumble drying is a good idea if you have a dust mite allergy, as is washing bedding in hot water weekly. If you have sensitive skin, I would avoid harsh heavily scented detergents, use a second rinse cycle to get detergent off clothes, and abstain from the use of dryer sheets. Use of a dehumidifier again may help with mold or dust mite growth in the home. The target for humidity is about 40-45%.

I've always had sensitive skin rash around my neckline. My hair and my clothes agitate it. It reappears regularly. Possibly an allergy? What to do?
Eczema vs. Contact: You may have just an irritant reaction to sweat and friction at the neck line, but you also may have a perfume/cologne allergy or a nickel allergy (found in jewelry of many types). Otc Hydrocortisone 1% may help if used 3 times a week or so. If the reaction is not controlled easily there would be a benefit from seeing a doctor to discover the true cause or use stronger prescriptions.
