Fiberglass poisoning can cause breathing problems like cough,sneezing,shortness of breath,skin rash,blisters formation,sometimes crusting.

The symptoms can range from mild to severe.

If you don't have such symptoms and not occupationally exposure to fibre glass then chances of poisoning are very less in your case.

Hope this helps.
