Hello, I have a very dry throat, slight metallic taste in mouth. Occasionally sense that I am breathing thru smoke. These issues have been with me for about 2 months. I ve been doing a lot of oil painting on canvas using cadmiums paints and turpentine. Have also added zyrtec to deal w/ spring allergies. What do you think these symtoms may relate to??

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I really appreciate your query, it is seems to be allergic condition and it could be chronic one. Occupation hazard could be the cause. Secondly, it could be olfactory hallucination, it is kind of functional disorders. Second generation anti-allergic can be tried like Levocetirizine for hallucination. You need to try to come out of the stress and control your self.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
