Office Induced Leaky Nose

I'm allergic to the office.

The place is cleaned every Saturday. I have found myself surviving from Mon - Wed/Thurs. Come Friday, my nose would leak uncontrollably when I am in the office.

It calms down when I walk out of the office and stay outside for 10-15 minutes. When I say outside, I mean out in the corridor, where it is still air-conditioned, and not in the open sun.

I had to work from home one Friday afternoon as I was expecting a delivery and installation of a ceiling fan for the baby's nursery. The nose was leaking the ENTIRE morning I was in the office. I was using up copious amounts of tissue, and had to keep walking out for some relief, to wash my hands and to spray on a hand sanitizer. The moment I left office for lunch and home however, the nose stopped leaking completely. It was like someone turned off the tap!

Something needs to be done, but I don't know if anyone knows what is best!

No choice leh, this is my office after all!

imp:
I know :( I am thinking of bringing a small water-based one from home. Maybe I should try sometime this week. But not sure how much it will help and worried of theft too.

I've always had a sensitive nose. The kind of nose that will leak non-stop when I am attempting to do housework. So no, it is not a pregnancy thing :)

some of my colleagues and i are allergic to the office too. we only cough and sneeze more frequently when we are in the office. we feel weaker in the office too.

but our case may be due to the mental state of mind la. heh!
