A new preservative methylisothiazolinone (MI) or any volatile organic compounds can cause allergies to paints. All paints produce vapors which trigger an allergic reaction
in many people. Coughing, runny nose, sore throat
and congestion are standard reactions to paint fumes; sufferers may also experience itchy and watery eyes.
The first thing you must do is go out and stay in fresh air for a while. Inform your close friends of any breathing difficulties. Then please seek medical help
and confirm that you are not having any serious reactions.
Hope this helps
