  • aggravators

    I went to the doctor on Tuesday because I thought I had bronchitis but he diagnosed me with a lung virus and gave me mucinex, an albuterol inhaler and BTUSS cough suppressant.

    I've been feeling overly sensitive and flared since this evening; could it be the effects of any of those medicines? He also told me to take 1000mg of vitamin c every day so I did that yesterday and today; bad idea?

    It's so frustrating not knowing what it may be. I took a bath with baking soda and this new bubble bath I bought so I'm wondering if it's the bubble bath although it's hypoallergenic, fragrance and chemical free, for babies!!

    Any feedback would be much appreciated! Thank you.

    Well this could be several things. Being sick sometimes will do it, medications such as cough syrups also can do it but the big thing I also see is the Vit C. and the bubble bath... both of those are big for me.

    If I had to pick the biggest thing out of your list it would be the Vit. C. The other things I mentioned will flare some people but most IC'ers have trouble with the C.

    I would try to cut back on that and try and really watch your diet and see if that helps.

    I hope you feel better soon.

      Thanks Jolene.

      I wondered about the bubble bath. I'm able to use this other bubble bath with milk and honey as long as I put baking soda in it and I rinse off afterwards, which is why I didn't think this bubble bath would be an issue. I specifically ordered this bubble bath from because it was hypoallergenic, fragrance and chemical free etc. Maybe that isn't all that it doesn't need to have to aggravate!

      I'm feeling a little better so I am going to cut down on the vit c. Thanks again!
