Welcome to just answer.
I am here to answer you..
Did you inhale cinammon powder ?
I sprinkled some cinnamon on my home-made yoghurt and accidentally inhaled some while eating. Now I've got an irritating cough.
When did this happen ?
Within the last 15 minutes
Are you suffering from any medical condition like asthma ?
Has the cough increased since you inhaled it ?
No. 65, non-insulin-dependent diabetes II, high BP (meds)
Any breathlessness or any other complaints apart from the cough ?
How severe is the cough ?
You mean breathing complaints? The cough is annoying, not severe
I mean is the coughing getting you breathless ?
It feels like it is in the throat, not the lungs. The cough is making my throat more raw-feeling (drying effect of powder?)
Thank you for the information .
No, the coughing is not making me breathless
Cinammon powder is harmless as such.....at the most t causes irritation when inhaled and also burning at times.
Thus if the coughing is not severe it subsides with time .
Thus you should get fresh air as that will help clear your throat .
Should I be concerned that some particles may have made it into my lungs?
As you have no breathing difficulty and not a very severe cough it is nothing to worry about as apart from this there is nothing to worry about.
No,you do not need to worry about that at all.
In case you develop breathlessness or an allergic reaction then it is a cause of worry.
You seem fine..
OK, sold. :-) This is precisely the type of information I was seeking. Thank you.
Thus you just need to watch out for an increase in the symptoms.
Take care and god bless..
I wish you great health..
I will. Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX bless you as well.
