What Are the Symptoms of a Harmful Chemical Exposure?
When exposed to a small amount of chemicals, one may experience tearing eyes, nose, throat, chest, and skin burning. You may experience headaches, sweating, blurred vision, stomachaches and diarrhea. Anxiety can often accompany even the mildest symptoms of exposure to a toxic chemical. These symptoms usually subside once exposure is stopped.
In addition to breathing difficulties, coughing, wheezing, a faint feeling, or weakness, chemical exposure can also cause more serious effects. In the form of sudden collapse, convulsions, and possibly even death, the most harmful chemicals cause the most damage.
