Virtually any chemical exposure, even in low doses, can have a negative affect on health if the exposure is for a prolonged period of time. Prolonged exposure to chemicals can result in multiple chemical sensitivity, which is also known as:
- toxic injury;
- chemical sensitivity (CS);
- chemical injury syndrome (CIS);
- 20th Century syndrome;
- environmental illness (EI):
- sick-building syndrome;
- idiopathic environmental intolerance (IEI); and
- toxicant-induced loss of tolerance (TILT).
Symptoms of MCS may be mild, moderate or severe, and commonly include the following during or after chemical exposure:
- anaphylactic shock;
- difficulty breathing;
- headaches; and
- contact dermatitis.
