My son was picking out the colors for his car and the guy sprayed a couple of swatches to have him see color choice and he got really light headedand fainted, headache, a little nausea. He is feeling better now, but still has a headache. Should I be worried or what should we do? He must be really sensitive, because my husband and I were there too and didn't get sick. What is the first aid?
