Hi there craig ~

It is not uncommon to have these symptoms of coughing, feeling horrible taste in your mouth, and lungs feeling raw after using cleaner to remove marks. These cleaners have hallucinogenic properties and also dry up your lungs and mucous membranes when they come in contact with them. They cause irritation and so you start to have a cough. Headaches are also a common side effect of these substances. I recommend that you avoid these cleaners and consult a qualified doctor if your problem persists.

I hope this helps. Take care.
