Inhaled insecticide, witnessing heaviness in chest, difficult to breathe. How to get relief?

Hi! I m a 20 year old with no asthma or breathing problems as such. Two/three days back I sprayed an insecticide in my room which I inhaled for a long period. Since then, I ve been witnessing heaviness in my chest . At night, I m finding it difficult to breathe. There is no chest congestion. My doctor advised me nebuliser but since I can t go all the way to the hospital everyday, I was wondering if AeroCort would help me get some relief. It was recommended to me by a family doctor. I just want to cross verify.

hello dear
thanks for your query at HCM
your doctor might have advised neulization with broncho dilator , because the spray you used might have caused irritation and constricted the respiratory system .
aerocort is not a broncho dilator it is corticosteroid used in allergic and asthmatic conditions, no need for that drug.
take nebulization as doctor prescribed if your having discomfort, other wise no need for that also, it will resolve on its own in some time.
