I have seen this happen to other people on a couple of occasions to varying
degrees.  One friend is now rather sensitive to even small amounts of moth
scales (eyes water and face puffs up).  Probably best to take your doctors
advice regarding any further exposure!

I put about 10 pair of Lunas in a box to tie and the next day when I took
the lid off I must have inhaled about a cup of white abdomen dust. To make a
long story short I'm now on a steroid inhaler and Claritin. Has anyone else
had this reaction to moths?
