Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Fogging is an act of fogging with pesticides which aims to kill mosquitoes. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the gas for fogging mosquitoes has been formulated in such a way that it does not harm humans or pets. The content of insecticides in these gases is so minimal that it can only kill insects as small as mosquitoes. However, if inhaled in excessive amounts, this gas can cause some side effects for humans.
Although called safe by WHO, in general, pesticides used in controlling mosquitoes are dangerous poisons. Therefore, there are some negative health effects that you must be aware of. Because the content of substances in fogging gases is basically poison, most inhalation of this gas can cause side effects of poisoning. Symptoms of fogging gas poisoning include coughing, sneezing, nasal congestion, nausea, vomiting, increased saliva production, sweating, red eyes, itchy skin, breathless breathing, abdominal pain, until loss of consciousness.
so it could be because you have pesticide poisoning, which irritates your airway, even though the symptoms are not severe. but complaints that you experience can also be due to allergic symptoms / asthma due to inhalation of alergan ingredients such as smoke, dust, pollen and cold temperatures, food and can also be caused by a viral infection that infects your respiratory tract.
