Allergy to Fragrances

I developed a severe allergy to something found in many fragrances. Do
not think it is the "scent" part of the fragrance as I do not react to
a particular "smell". This ingredient is found in products ranging
from household cleaners to personal care products.
My reaction is almost instant. I go into severe asthma. If exposure
is more than very brief I also have swelling, fatigue, drop in BP, and
muscle/joint aches. At this point is I cannot work a public job and am
at risk any time I go out in public.
Medically little has been offered that helps other than avoidance. I
am looking for information on ingredients in fragrances. I am also
looking for any information on treatments that are available.
Thank you very much
