Question: Hi, I helped stain a large number of boards three weeks ago. The fumes were not removed from the room, so we breathed them in all afternoon. now, weeks later I have a nasty infection around my mouth, i become easily agitated and inside quakes. Does this sound like poisoning to you, and how do i go about getting better? i am normally a happy person who likes to do oil paintings....

Brief Answer:
Doesn’t look like poisoning.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting Healthcaremagic!
I have gone through your query and I can understand your concerns.
The symptoms and signs doesn’t look like poisoning.
However it is not good to use the particular room immediately after painting. Also try to wear masks when you handle paint.
It would be better if you attach a picture of oral lesion.
Wishing you good health.
