Chemical tasting

I have allergies. No surprise, most people do. However, I have a bad reaction to chemicals, for lack of a better term. Where others smell a nifty perfume? I taste chemicals. Your body wash, hair spray, or scented shampoo? Guaranteed headache, nausea from a post-nasal drip, and a chemical taste for me.

The allergist I had seen just told me to take a Claritin a day. It had been helping, but the past month's been getting worse. Pounding sinus headaches, my heart-rate pounding at the rate of the headache, constant chemical taste... I am not a happy raptor.

Am I the only person who has this problem?
