So I hope this relieves the anxiety about this.
You do not have acute silicosis which is a horrible disease and would have you in the hospital.
You certainly do not have chronic silicosis.
You should also remember that mixtures of product have other chemicals, there is out gassing, and a temporary sensitivity reaction can occur depending on the person.
And the most likely possibility..you have an allergy, a cold virus, etc........
There are all sorts of reactions people get to exposures every day and many are not medically defined....but most go away.
Yes if you were a sand blaster, exposed to a lost of dust, without mask protection..then I might have some concern.
Use reply if you need to clarify
