I doubt anyone is allergic to it. PVC is often used for water pipes.

Could be the chemicals. There's a MSDS (material safety data sheet)
for almost every chemical people contact at work.
(LOL including "white out").
Maybe helpful to check that.

If enough of us got sick, Class action Lawsuit time$$$$$ :wink:
Suprised they're aren't any advertisement links to lawyer here yet.

Try only using one safety device at a time (plus goggles), and see which one makes you not sick :P

I do wash my hands after I build something, and I always wash my hands before I eat, so I don't think that is the problem, I think it is that when I use the dremel tool, I usually have my face pretty close to what I am working on so that I can be precise, and since my face is close to what I am working on all of the dust is right in front of my mouth.

I don't think I will be doing too much more with PVC, since I am %85 sure that it is the cause, but I do have a few appointments for scans and tests to make sure that it is nothing serious.
