Caller said that PCO had sprayed the product on September 27th, 2018. It was sprayed all over the house, couches, and beds and her room mate continued to spray the product in the house every day since the initial treatment. The caller developed symptoms while her room mate was asymptomatic. The call center staff stated that the described exposure would not be expected to cause the majority of symptoms described and recommended the caller seek medical attention to explore other possible causes of the symptoms, especially fever. The call center staff stated inhalation of this product may lead to irritation of the upper respiratory tract, and that adverse health effects are typically limited to the upper respiratory tract and resolve without affecting other body functions. The call center staff stated that the caller should be removed from the source of the fumes and placed in an area with fresh air and adequate ventilation, and to also ventilate the area by opening windows and doors and to consider adding portable fans until the odor has dissipated. Call center staff said she may also wash treated surfaces with an appropriate household cleaner. The call center staff said that patients who smoke or have underlying respiratory conditions may experience more pronounced symptoms that require medical attention. Finally, the call center staff recommended seeking medical attention if the patient's symptoms do not resolve within 30 minutes of the call, if the patient develops shortness of breath, or if breathing is difficult to call 911, and to call back with any additional questions or concerns.
