Garlic: Reaction to Smell?
« on: October 28, 2014, 03:23:55 PM »
I am allergic to garlic.  I work in a building where everyone loves to microwave foods with garlic in them.  The smell makes my sinuses swell and makes me sneeze.  Am I actually having an allergic reaction, or has my body trained itself to respond that way to the smell?
