Inhaled lysol spray. Burning sensation in chest, throat. Cause permanent damage to lungs?

I accidently took in a big inhalation of Lysol spray while cleaning today. I sprayed my garbage can, saw something at the bottom and bent into the can to get it not realizing the aerosol was still thick. I inhaled a pretty big amount. Will this cause permanent damage to my lungs? it s been several hours since it happened. i didn t feel sick or different in any way except for a burning sensation in my throat and upper chest .

Hello,
These sprays are respiratory irritants and the burning sensation in the throat and upper chets is a normal response of the body/airways.
Unless you have asthma, when these irritants can flare up the asthma and you will need increased dose of inhalers, then you do not need to worry.
An antihistamine syrup (usually with cough syrups as well) can soothe the throat and lower the inflammation and would recommend that if the throat is still sore.
Warm water throat gargle would also help.
Best Wishes.
