When drilling into a fiberglass tub, did not have proper face mask in place. This caused inhalation of fiberglass. What can I do to fix the irritation?

In brief: Difficult

Fiberglass inhalation is considered relatively harmless.
If the irritation (especially cough) has persisted over weeks, however, following a single exposure, this may be the "reactive airways dysfunction" that affected so many rescue workers after 9/11. A pulmonologist can offer some help. Good luck.
