Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi, I am an American Board Certified Neurologist and I am very glad to help you with your health concerns. I have received this question only now and I am answering this immediately.
Yes it is better to visit ER. You are having new onset symptoms after getting exposed to the chemicals used during carpet cleaning. In the ER they will examine you and also conduct few investigations that can shed more light into the nature and extent of injury to the lungs and other parts of the body including eyes etc. However these kinds of injuries are self resolving and you should feel better in the coming few days. In the meantime the doctors in the ER will decide whether you need any treatments like nasal Oxygen, Steroid treatment etc to manage this acute condition. So visiting the ER is recommended now.
Once again I reassure you these type of chemical exposure related lung/eye irritations are self limiting conditions, however seeing doctors in the ER is a prudent idea so that you receive a thorough examination, investigations and also relevant treatments which will help in rapid and full recovery.
Please let me know if you have any further questions; and if you feel you have received the answer to your question please rate me so that I can receive credit for the time and effort put by me in answering your question.
