Nothing is needed: Your body will "heal" itself. Second hand smoke generally only causes problems with long-term and continuous exposure, like people working in bars or other places where people smoke, or in homes where there are smokers. One exposure will not cause major problems, unless you are highly sensitive (asthma, allergy etc.). Normal diet, activity and exercise will help, nothing else should be needed.

Call a lawyer: As an employee, you have a right not to be exposed to second-hand smoke, at least in the usa. As a kid, if smoke in your home exacerbates your asthma or other breathing problems, it's time to get on the phone and let your physician know. Someone may be able to help.
