Are Paint Fumes Dangerous To Kids
Yes: Try not to expose child to fumes. If that's not possible, make sure room's well ventilated.
Yes: I know this may sound silly, but avoid the paint fumes if this is the cause. Paint fumes are poisonous and if your child is highly sensitive to paint fumes then get your child out of the way of them.
Can paint fumes cause permanent damage five minutes Exposure? I believe it was latex paint not sure tho in was indoors at apartments
Doubtful: NO. Latex paint would not be toxic unless allergic to its' components and 5 minutes is still a very brief exposure.
Not likely, but: If you're talking about you painted a room and you can still smell it, then no. However, if your child has asthma or recently had a bad respiratory infection with something like RSV, then they may be a bit hypersensitive to the odor and this could trigger off some breathing problems, especially in a closed off area. Then you may want to consider alternate ventilation to get rid of odor.
Fumes: The amount of exposure is very important - if you think was severe the. Go to er now. If was awhile ago and want much and was ventilated and baby and everyone else exposed is fine then there isn't anything can be done and probably going to be ok anyway.
Spray paint death: Hello ~ no probably not but you will feel nauseous and have a headache and difficulty breathing. You need a proper OSHA recommended respirator when you spray paint, and its recommended because failure to use one has serious long and short term effects. Use a RESPIRATOR!

Possible..: Environmental irritants can indeed cause a cough. Baby airways are very sensitive, so things that don't bother you can still bother them. If possible, air out the house today, make sure there is adequate humidity in baby's environment, and if not improving over the next couple of days or new associated symptoms like fever, then see your doc.
I have an allergy to paint fumes I have had a headache for a week now how can I get rid of this headache?
Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen: Reducing further exposure paint fumes will help to relieve the headache. Hopefully you are not a professional painter. Usual measures to relieve headache and exposure to fresh air will help to get a relief. The chemical particles binds to your receptors in the nose and triggers headache. It is not necessarily due to allergies; it could be a irritant reaction; the best way is to reduce exposure.
Could dementia be triggered or accelerated by exposure to spray paint fumes or does that sound crazy? Thanks!
My wife inhaled a lot of paint fumes from spray paint yesterday and is still having shortness of breathe and now her head is swimmy from time to time?
Paint fumes: Inhalation of paint fumes can cause an asthmatic reaction or a chemical irritation/inflammation of the bronchial tubes or, in extreme cases, a chemical pneumonitis. If symptoms aren't resolving after removing oneself from that exposure, it's advisable to have a physician examine the lungs for injury.See 1 more doctor answer
