Can inhalation of kerosene cause any significant harm?
No significant harm. Just ensure that you have the windows open.
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.
I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Kerosene is a known cause of indoor air pollution. You therefore need to ensure a good ventilation in case you want to use kerosene for the time being. Kerosene can have a damaging effect on the lungs and so it would be advisable to limit its use. Nevertheless, if used for just a couple of days before you can make alternative arrangements, it should not be a big deal.
Let me know if I could help further.
