Why it is important
Avoiding irritants helps in combating inflammation. Increased inflammation may play a role in depression..
Prolonged or repeated exposure to weak irritants or a single exposure to stronger irritants may result in lasting health effects such as (irritative) eczema or asthma.
Discuss this health aspect with others. Ask questions and get answers.
