The subject and her colleague entered their place of work (a restaurant) at 7:10 am on June 5, 2023. The subject immediately got a headache, had an asthma attack, trouble breathing and stomach pains. She believes she may have inhaled fumes of the products applied. Her colleague reported having a headache and feeling tired. An ambulance was called to the workplace. The subject was treated with oxygen and had her vitals checked. The subject was not transported to the hospital at this point. On June 9, the subject went to urgent care where she was prescribed Methylprednisolone. The subject on June 10 said their headache and stomach pains were on and off but not as bad as they were on June 5. The subject also took Excedrin Extra Strength and an unspecified sinus allergy medication since onset of symptoms. The subject said it is hard to breathe when outdoors but thinks it is the air quality due to the fires they are having in the state.
