Paint fumes? I have an allergy to methylisothiazolinone confirmed by patch testing. I moved into a new place that had some lingering paint smell. Is this very uncomfortable reaction consistent with a reaction to paint fumes?

Yes, that looks like an allergic reaction to an aeroallergen. MI is present in paint fumes. I think you’re right.
