Oooh....dusty working environment! That's what set my DES into over drive about 7 years ago. The dust just absorbs moisture, gets in your eyes and irriates them so much. Is there any way you can wear googles while working? I wish I had If I knew what was going to happen I would have worn googles and a face mask. Live and learn I suppose.
About the Johnsons Baby Shampoo - I'm in Ireland and we get the same stuff as the UK and the one I have has no Q-15 in it. Hadn't even thought to look before just now! But I find the shampoo dries my eyes and irritates them. I'm using Supranette wipes, and although expensive they're the best I've found.
Yup, the lamps that keep food warm; patio heaters in beer gardens; open fires;, gas heaters in my gran's house; being anywhere close to a kitchen...it's an absolute minefield for eye pain. I think for me it's that the nerves in my eyes are so sensitive at this stage that it doesn't take much to cause pain.
One of the worst aggravators of my DES is that whoosh of hot air you get when walking into a shop. I walk into and out of every shop with my eyes closed. Can cause a bit of commotion but I've learned to keep an eye out for buggies before I close my eyes!
