Hi friends, I developed an allergy (respiratory) to the garden-variety "instant-glues" several years ago. Now; all I have to do.. is open-up a tube and squirt some out.. and I'm going to have swelling in my sinuses that persists for several days if not a week or more.. Shocked

As soon as the glue "kicks".. there's a vapor that's released. If you're allergic; once you smell it.... it's too late.

My sinuses are compromised as it is. Seasonal allergies mess with me BAD. Trying to sleep when you're affected is the worst.

So I've been thinking; if I don't (or can't) smell it... then maybe I'll be able to use the glue without consequence. I'm going to try using the expanding-foam ear-plugs in my nostrils..  to see if I can tolerate use with mouth breathing only. I always use a fan.. but it hasn't seemed to help.

This afternoon I dug out my bag of earplugs... and put some in my CA glue storage.. along with a reminder to try them.

I'll report back "here" when I have some results.

Are there alternatives you could use?

Epoxy, Polyacrylate glue, etc.?

I wonder if something like this would help: https://www.amazon.com/Solder-Fume-Extractor-Filtration-Soldering/dp/B08HYZQ81J/ref=asc_df_B08HYZQ81J/

Or you could setup a fan that vents outside, like maybe repurpose a cheap ceiling bath fan.

Hi Jacob, Thanks for your reply. Yes; eventually I'll need to provide exhaust to outdoors. I have the fans to do it.. but access to outside air will be tough. The sm. basement windows afford considerable accessibility challenges.. or CAC Laughing I've got CAC issues..
