Strong smells or scents

If things like deodorant, perfume, incense and strong scents (such as from chemicals) are a trigger for you, it’s best to avoid these products.  In some places such as schools or work, it is not always possible. If you feel like your asthma is being triggered by strong smells and scents at work, we encourage you to discuss this with your manager. You can read our workplace policy here.

We’ve also created posters you can download, print and share.
