Had lysol sprayed in face and inhaled alot. Will I be ok?

Make a call: I got this from a website: when using lysol spray, be sure there is plenty of ventilation. Do not spray near your face and risk inhaling the fumes.

Wipes made for skin will likely have gentler ingredients or gentler amounts of the ingredients. Diaper wipes are ok. ...Read more
