Often, I have people asking me if I know of any good doctors here in Australia. I do, but these are only here in Melbourne, Australia. It would be great if we could expand this list to include doctors Australia wide. If you know of a doctor, specialist or dentist who is adept at treating patients who are sensitive to chemicals, then please add them to the list. Just click the add button (on the list); or, alternatively, drop in a link down in comments. Or, click here to sent a message via the contact form (Doctors willing to go fragrance free for their patients are awesome!)

What is Chemical Sensitivity? People who are sensitive to a chemical get symptoms from exposure to low levels of that chemical - levels that do not cause symptoms in most people. For example, being near cigarette smoke or perfume or car exhaust may give someone sensitive to chemicals asthma or a headache. Many people can become free of symptoms by avoiding chemicals they are sensitive to. A few people make a full recovery and are no longer affected by low levels of chemicals. MCS is worsened by continued exposure to toxic chemicals. Occasionally MCS is fatal.
