using cleaning products

Hello all,
I seem to have a problem with sinus pain and sore throat every time I clean the home. I try to use the weakest of products I can buy but still have the same problem. Is this due to a chemical I am using? I have tried using white vinegar with baking soda but doesn't seem to solve the problem. Any ideas?

Re: using cleaning products

Patient with uderlying chronic sinusitis/rhinitis can be sensitive to strong chemical smells. it is not an alergic reaction but an irritant reaction.. Sometimes a nasal steroid spray might improve your symptoms (as it is anti-inflammatory)
