Dizziness And Sudden Double Vision After Washing With Powdered Detergent?
Good evening doctor, I want to ask, are there any side effects from using powdered detergent other than skin irritation? because I was washing clothes with powdered detergent, and the smell of the detergent was very strong, suddenly when each brushing clothes, my vision became double but not bad, if I closed one eye, my vision was normal and a little sore at the bridge of the nose, After drinking a lot of water after a few minutes my vision returned to normal but I’m still a bit dizzy until now, do you think it was caused by detergent or some other disease? thank you.
Double vision that appears suddenly can be caused by conditions such as =
Astigmatism or cylinder. Eye fatigue. Drinking too much alcohol (drunk) Eye infections Eye inflammation Eye tumors Disorders of the eye muscles. eye nerve disorders. Nasopharyngeal cancer. Double vision is one of the medical signs that needs to be watched out for and checked immediately in order to determine the cause and provide treatment.
Strong odors can cause dizziness, but generally rarely cause double vision unless there is a chemical drug that is strong enough and is inhaled (inhaled) by you. These chemicals can cause pain in the respiratory tract (nose and throat) and cause other systemic complaints.
Regarding your case, we can't be sure whether the detergent is the cause, you can consult a doctor if you still feel dizzy or it happens again when you wash. If necessary, avoid using the smelly detergent or use a mask.
Drink plenty of water, rest and manage stress can help avoid further side effects.
I hope this helps.
