ammonia

Avatar f tn I'm 6 weeks pregnant and I work in a paint department. I mix colors and clean up paint pretty much. Since I've worked there we have always used glass cleaner to clean the paint off the desk and our hands. I didnt know this until today but the cleaner we use has ammonia in it. I've been using it every day for a few months to get the paint off of my hands. Could it have hurt my baby?
Avatar f tn formaldehyde, amines or ammonia compounds and VOCs that I discussed above. Formaldehyde is a known chemical sensitizer and strong irritant that is used in pathology and embalming. It has been shown to cause nasal tumors in rats and is used as a stabilizer in paint.

Paint and inks:These spots are more complicated to deal with. Both are cleaned with solvents or removers of layers of paint: there are several types, the most common are methylene chloride or mineral alcohol. Take care with methylene chloride, it is dangerous.

Avatar m tn The only thing that helped were colonics and infared sauna sessions for a 3-4 day relief. I rushed back to the doctor and he picked up the chemicals in my system, an infection in my small intestine, stress on the pancreas and leaky gut.
Avatar n tn In the case of a school, professional help is advised, but in a bathroom use a spray bottle with 100% ammonia, go in, hold your breath and spray a three foot by three foot area. You should practice this. The idea is NOT to inhale any of the fumes. NEVER EVER USE AMMONIA AND BLEACH! NEVER! Mixed together they form a poisonous gas. Then leave the house to take care of errands. In an hour or two come back and do another three foot by three foot portion, and again leave the house.
Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar f tn Totally safe, just make sure you're in a well ventilated area or if you go to a salon, tell your cosmetologist that you're pregnant (although I'm sure you can tell since you're so far, lol) because your hormones can cause the hair dye to take differently.
Avatar f tn If you use ammonia free dye, ive dyed mine several times throughout
598816 tn?1219546166 org/wiki/Volatile_organic_compounds There are synthetic VOCs as well, which are commonly used in paint and some cleaners. Paint is a real biggie. I have asthma and migraines, and paint can set off an attack of either. There is a low or no VOC paint available now, in several brands. There is still some smell, but the smell is much less, lingers a lot less, and doesn't usually set off asthma/migraines if you have the room ventilated. I also read VOC is also in some dry cleaning solvents.
5002615 tn?1366017609 When i was pregnant with my first child i craved pine sol, bleach, ammonia, paint thinner, permanent markers the one thats fat and silver with the black top....and get this the doctor told me that i could sniff it just not drink it. SMH i was cleaning the house every chance i got. I also bought one of those dollar spray bottles and poured pine sol in it and sprayed my room like a air freshener.
1694467 tn?1306352972 Decades past, when tuberculosis was a scourge, one of the first things done, after dust removal, was sealing all surfaces with fresh new non-permeable paint. In modern times this would be a gloss of semi-gloss, two coats. This will seal in bacteria, eggs from parasites, and fungi. Wooden floors should be sealed with polyurethane. Use good ventilation. Paint the rooms a light color to insure good reflectivity of incoming sunlight. Keep windows wide open, if possible.
Avatar f tn severe abdominal and feet/ankle/let swelling, variceal bleeding, bacterial infections, frequent mental impairment including confusion, loss of memory, slurred speech and moody/difficult personality (I also think he doesn’t take his medicine as he should due to his memory, etc.) Bruises easily Tired, weak and doesn’t sleep well To complicate his health problems depression has lead to him beginning to binge drink and, obviously, further deteriorating his health issues.
Avatar m tn All of this is in relation to my 1 bedroom apartment in CA. Basically, I don't think this place has been very well maintained. It looks as if there was a mold issue and they just painted white paint over everything wrong with the place. Second, im worried about the air quality in the area. There is: 1. An autoshop about 30 feet behind my apartment, and at my front door and if I leave it open spray paint fumes will come in, and these fumes linger outside my front door.
Avatar n tn I've got a strong burning sensation in my nose which is very annoying. If I open my mouth, I can feel the burn in the front of my teeth and tongue. This has been going on over a year. I've read about the burning tongue symptom, but not the nasal area. Lately, I've been experiencing another odd body change. Sometimes when I eat or drink certain foods, I get this strange, pungent taste. Kind of like horseradish, cilantro and ammonia mixed together.

Avatar m tn Any chance you could get her into a detox center? Alcohol turns into compounds like paint thinner and finger nail polish remover in the body. A healthy liver can detox or neutralize some alcohol, and sick liver cannot...if she keeps it up she'll be gone soon, if she got help she could cure and live another 40 years....you can commit a loved one to get them into detox. Call your local detox center and they will tell you how to go about this. You don't need insurance to get detoxed. mb.

It was as if mother nature could feel the cold in my heart... my husband's condition seems to be declining, and it's indescribable watching someone who you've only known to be strong and indomitable lose all their strength and spirit. The past few days he's not wanted to eat or get out of bed... only occasional sips of fluid and trips to the bathroom.
Avatar n tn Ammonia is the most common of these, although other substances can also build up. Ammonia is toxic to the brain and central nervous system, and too much ammonia in the blood can lead to impaired brain function, including changes in behavior and consciousness. There are successful treatments for HE, so anyone with these symptoms needs to be under medical care.
406107 tn?1219016200 Cross your fingers and wish me luck. I'm having another BT tomorrow to check Ammonia levels in my blood,(was 26 or 27 last mo.) The bruises have just started to fade from the last poking around to start the IV for my 3rd EGD, (Esophageal dilitation), they stick a tube down your throat, (with a camera and baloon on the end), find the narrow place, and blow up the baloon, to widen the esophagus. RE; am I going to participate, I'll let ya know on the 28th.
Avatar f tn My damn dog pees everywhere the people that used to live here smoked 3 packs a day it seems and I'm damn sure there's mold in the vents. Also my male cat that is fixed still has that ammonia smell in his pee. is there any type you recommend?
Avatar m tn Predominantly toluene.
Avatar m tn It can even form a toxic gas when hyper-chlorinated by hot water. In the environment, sodium hypochlorite is acutely toxic to fish. The chlorine in bleach can also bind with organic material in the marine environment to form organochlorines, toxic compounds that can persist in the environment. Products containing chlorine bleach usually contain trace amounts of organochlorines that cause cancer in animals and are expected to do so in humans.
2030686 tn?1351692148 "So if there's no liver damage there's no real worry about toxicity?" --------------------------------------------------- No, I do not mean that. There can still be toxicity even if it is not from liver damage or liver dysfunction. By definition, hepatic encephalopathy refers to encephalopathy caused by liver dysfunction. A.D.A.M.

Avatar m tn Sight is worse and things seem darker but at the same time light hurts), motion sickness when I never had it before, smelling spray paint and ammonia even though there is none, buzzing sensation (no sound just sensation), numbness in throat, staring at a computer screen makes it all feel worse, and i think I've been having very subtle hallucinations in my peripheral vision (Thinking a light is on when it's not, seeing something off on a TV picture that isn't off when I look directly at it).
