Has there been any building or interior modification recently? For example, new furniture, insulation, etc.
It could be a formaldehyde allergy.
A formaldehyde gas detector can be used for sampling.

I have had similar reactions before. Is the person allergic to mold? Found out in a previous employer that they had mold growing in the hvac ducting.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Air Sampling???

Hello all,

Recently, a colleague of mine is experiencing symptom of irritation, itching, and allergic reaction every time he enters one of the buildings at our workplace. This is a music building. Do you know what kind of air sampling I should conduct? Any suggestions on how I approach this problem?
