Patient asked followup Question: 10 years ago

1 hour back accidentally inhaled ponds talcum powder , 28 years female, need any immediate medical attention? will it cause long term lungs desease?

Hi,

You have written about having inhaled talcum powder but you have not written as to how much powder was inhaled and did you have any immediate problems.We may expect two types of problems---
1. Immediate---like cold,sneezing,watering from nose and eyes,wheezing,and breathlessness which may take the shape of frank asthma
2.Long term---due to deposition of the inhaled powder dust in the respiratory pathways and lungs leading to serious respiratory ,permanent or temporary nature problems.These depend on the dose inhaled and contents of the inhaled powder .
SERIOUS LUNG DAMAGE IS POSSIBLE WITH A HIGH DOSE.

If in respiratory distress - hospitalization is advisable,otherwise simple measures would be helpful and may be sufficient. However you don't have to think about long term effects, those are for people who work in such factories.
