I am building some acoustic panels to hang on my wall and ceiling and as I have a dust allergy I want to make sure they are totally contained and can not leak dust through fabric. (I have not decided yet whether to build these from 2 inch 703 or 8lb density 2 inch rockwool panels.)

Just bought brand new acoustic panels. These are 60cm x 120cm with rigid panel of polyurethane foam 40kg/m3 as the absorvent material. They are covered with good breathable fabric at both front and back sides. Images attached.
I put them on my bedroom studio and they absorb quite nicely for my needs which is electronic music. The problem is that after 10 or 15 min my nose and skin started to scratch, I'm also having breathing issues, my chest kind of hurts and started to have nausea and stomach irritation.
I am acoustically treating my newly completed project studio - including extra thick and damped drywalls. My room measures 18' x 12' x 9'. Those dimensions, though either a Sepmeyer or Louden (can't remember) preferred ratio, still exhibit a 33 Hz mode. I may not be able to completely get that, but hope to lessen its higher multiple frequencies. So...the obvious...bass traps and some fiberglass acoustic panels.
I'm wondering if it will be beneficial to surround the 12" x 4 speaker box I'm using with acoustic panels, creating a sort of closed space for the microphone.
I'm using Peavey JSX 120w head and I have a couple of high end guitars with humbuckers.
Should I build the panels I need or should I do this without them?
