Customer Question
My wife sprayed lysol...

My wife sprayed lysol on Sunday early afternoon. I cannot stand the smell

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Sorry I cannot get the smell out of my head. its been 72 hours and all I smell is lysol.. Is the something I should see a doctor for? The only med is amlodipine/benazerpril

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that makes your head feel worse or better?

I've been on the med. a couple years and no other smells lasts or bothers me

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No I have a yearly check up, nothing has changed

You may want to try a sinus irrigation with saline which could help. Or a NettyPot sinus irrigation system which could help wash that smell out of your sinuses. Opening all the windows and vacuuming could help

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
