Mom: Daughter Allergic To Teacher’s Perfume


 Mom: Daughter Allergic To Teachers PerfumeALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A new Mexico mom complained to the school district that a teacher’s perfume might be causing her 6-year-old daughter’s severe allergies.Anhelica Arrietta, 6, used a breathing machine Friday to help her deal with asthmatic symptoms that her mother claimed were brought on by her teacher.her mom, Paula, said the district is not taking her complaint seriously.”My teacher, she wears perfume that kind of makes me sick,” Anhelica said.her mom said this is no “the-dog-ate-my-homework” claim.after starting school this year at Pablo Roybal Elementary School in the Pojoaque Valley, Anhelica began having bad coughing fits.Both Paula and their doctor said they believe it has been brought on by her teacher’s perfume.The doctor said perfume allergies are common, causing anything from headaches to hives. still, Paula said she can’t be 100 percent positive that the perfume is causing her daughter’s discomfort.so with a doctor’s note in hand, she said she asked the teacher to stop wearing the scent.”It’s an investigative process with asthma. once you find a trigger, you remove it and you see if that helps, and that’s what i was trying to do,” Paula said. “You would think a teacher would refrain from wearing it so that would help me know or not, but I’ve been ignored.”The district superintendent said officials are willing to work with the family.Late this week, Anhelica changed classrooms as a last resort. her mom said she is worried that home school might be the next step.”I’m not going to give my child five to six medications so her teacher can wear perfume,” Paula said.She said that most schools, if not all, have banned peanuts because of children’s allergies. Paula said she doesn’t understand the difference in her daughter’s perfume allergy case.
