HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I can understand this first thing you need to do is immediately get your self away from this, the fumigation can cause the local irritation long term exposure can be dangerous, drink plain cold water before drinking gargle for some time if the exposure is of short time then this will get alright soon, hope this information helps you have nice day.
