In brief: Irritation maybe
Nothing much ( irritation? Irrigate with artificial tears), its the getting in the lungs that's more serious.
I know i know, we grew up with talcum powder, and we turned out okay (well, some of us). However these days, use of baby powder is frowned upon due to possible danger of aspiration into the lungs.
