Swallowed fabric softener, detergent, spat it out, difficulty breathing, irritation in upper throat. Treatment?

I put a pod of fabric detergent and fabric softener in my mouth. It popped open, and I spit it out. Nevertheless, some of the fabric softener went down my throat . I continued to spit it out. During the first few seconds, I had much difficulty breathing .15 minutes have passed now. I feel some irritation around my upper throat, but it seems to be dminishing.
