I recently took an ETG test and am worried about the results.

I recently took an ETG test and am worried about the results. I took two albuterol neb treatments, advair inhaler and Pro Air for asthma. I also used shower spray with alcohol base. Can that cause me to fail the test. If so what would be acceptable paperwork.
Hi--are you saying that this was a spray you were using to clean the shower?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Yes I cleaned the shower with Lysol and I use after shower perfume from bath and body works.

And the shower perfume contained alcohol?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

It is alcohol based.

OK. No problem with your medications and there's very little chance the alcohol from the Lysol or the shower perfume will show up on the ETG test. First off, the Lysol alcohol is isopropyl and not ethanol. Second, there would have been too little ethanol in the perfume to be absorbed through the skin and to cause a positive test.
