Doctor insights on:
Exposure To Diesel Fumes
Yes.: The burning of both traditional incense and the drug of abuse "herbal-incense"creates carbon monoxide. A significant dose of carbon monoxide in an unventilated space, especially in a susceptible individual can lead to co poisoning. Please be responsible and safe. ...Read more
Probably not: If this were true, there would be more in the city than in the countryside and neither I nor anyone I've read about has observed this. Don't look for a cause for your acne. It's fruitless. Treat it. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician who can add something that will. ...Read more
Nothing to choose: Both are bad in different ways. Tobacco smoke predisposes to heart attacks, aggravates respiratory problems and may marginally increase the risk of cancers. Auto exhaust causes respiratory damage, carbon monoxide poisoning and depending on the type of exhaust may increase the risk of cancers. ...Read more
Could diesel fumes cause scar tissue and fibrosis - if the diesel fumes are in the work environment?
Don't look for cause: Acne is unrelated to hygiene or lifestyle and only marginally to diet. Don't try to figure out the cause, but manage your illness until it self-cures with age.

Toxic level: Cigarette smoking puts the toxins directly into your lungs and your body in a concentrated form. Auto exhaust is diluted by the time you might inhale it. Would you bend down, and directly inhale the exhaust from your car? Then consider what you are doing when you smoke - and stop altogether. ...Read more
Probably not measure: Cigarette smoke affects the lungs, bladder, heart and blood vessels. It might cause some subtle brain damage but the brain has significant barriers to toxins and so the effect if any is probably close to unmeasurable. The toxic effects of smoking are so obvious that quitting is the only rational pathway. ...Read more
Stop exposing them: The good news: a few hours after you stop breathing smoke, your body starts healing from its damaging effects. Heart rate drops. Carbon monoxide levels drop to normal. In a few weeks, your lungs work better. Within a year, your risk for heart disease is half what it was. Withing 15 years, you have no greater risk for respiratory cancers than a non smoker. ...Read more
How extensive?: Unless you have been exposed to a huge amount ( such as in an industrial setting ) for a long time , one should have mostly a transient respiratory or nasal response. It is also unusual to get chills and nausea from exposure to household bleach. I suspect you have something else going on (viral infection?). Can you tell us more about the exposure?
