12/18/2022 Caller reports that approximately one week prior to call he sprayed his sofa and chair with this product prior to going upstairs to bed with his wife. The following day when his wife laid on the sofa she began to feel a burning sensation on her skin and throughout her body described as being an electrical pulse, difficulty breathing, redness of the skin, eye itching and irritation, and tingling and swelling of her bottom lip. She has been seen by her primary care doctor, and the advice the doctor gave was to get out of the home due to the infestation of bed bugs and cockroaches, which the caller states is from his neighbors in the adjoining home next door. No further testing or treatment was provided by the doctor. The caller claims the doctor stated that the product may have been absorbed into the skin, but he cannot confirm.
