Dear Concerned.,
Thanks for writing to us.
The redness in eyes,itching in basically skin/mucosal surfaces is due to allergic reactions to constituents in paint/paint solvents/house dust and carpet dust.
The best way to prevention is to keep yourself from the offending allergen.please change your environment/shift yourself away untill the painting and other works have been completed.
Use an anti allergic oral medication(Antihistaminics) such as Fexofenadine /Chlorpheniramine orally at least once a day/as decided by your MD.
For Skin reaction pls apply caladryl lotion/Cream.
Salt water gargling for throat.If you develop any respiratory symptoms such as difficulty in breathing/wheezing pls contact you MD immediately to start on Nebulisation with bronchodilators/lifesaving steroids as angioneurotic oedema (medical term) is a dangerous condition.
wishing you very speedy recovery.,
Best Regards.,
Dr Lt Cdr ASN Bhushan.,
