Throat pain, congestion, ear pain after breathing in primer and fragrance. What should I do?

Just a few days ago I was helping a friend with painting and she sprayed primer in the room we were working in. She sprayed only a little, but it was really strong to me. She then tried to cover it up with a fragrance she had but sprayed way too much in the room. My throat started hurting and I started to feel like I couldn't breathe so I stepped out of the room, but I had already breathed in a lot of everything that was in the air. It's been four days since that happened and I've been sleeping a lot and had terrible congestion, plus ear aches, and my sore throat hasn't gotten any better. What should I do?

hi.. you are having hypersensitive airways...after exposure to primer vapor.. after that you had hypersecretions in the airways.. which leads to blockage of eustacian tubes and sorethroat due to secondary infection... see your physician for antibiotics, nasal decongesants and do valsalva manovar(fill air in your mouth and close the nostrils.. all the very best..
