Is Breathing Paint Fumes Harmful?

Hi, I accidentally breathed in paint fumes from several feet away in a different room, the door to the room was closed but I still was able to smell the paint fumes, and I took a deep breath and accidentally breathed the smell in. Will I be OK ? Is it toxic ?

Hello,

Breathing in pains for a longer time can chock the system and cause significant damage. It is important to stay away from paint fumes as soon as possible.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
