In brief: Talc
This has been known to cause a serious condition called pulmonary fibrosis which can lead to progressive decline in lung function and can even be fatal.
The good news is that you have to inhale lots of talc over long periods of time. Use judiciously for areas of localized irritated skin for short periods of time.
