This past weekend, I attended a funeral in a car with two smokers. I was exposed to second-hand smoke for 3 hours. I then attended an after funeral event for 1 1/2 hours with four smokers.
Needless to say, I was sick for two days after that with a stomachache, headache, dizziness, sore throat and chest congestion.
My first question is - is it possible to develop an allergy to second-hand smoke when you have had none before?
My second question is - How do I handle second-hand smoke at parties, holidays, etc, without getting sick (I've already spoken with family members about this and they have pretty much refused to stop smoking so I can attend any function)?
