A doctor has provided 1 answer

Chemical irritants: Children with chronic lung diseases such as asthma may experience a flare from strong odors, but otherwise healthy children should suffer no long term problems. Respiratory tissue irritation is possible, but can be addressed by improving ventilation in the car.
