Hi I walked past some fumes today, not sure what it was, but I wonder if breathing in anything outside while walking past can damage my health?

Hello. This is Dr Geyik and I will be assisting you today.

Can I please ask your age/gender and if you have any other medical conditions or allergies, or take medications?

And did you inhaler any of the fumes and do you have any symptoms?

Im f26, no issues or medsNo i didn’t purposely inhale but the wind might have blown some my way but i walked past quickly it i also have no symptoms

In that cause, I don't think there is any risk of toxic inhalation and this is not going to damage your health.

Okay! Even if i breathe in a tiny amount accidentally while walking past??

I don't think that would cause any significant harm unless you have severe lung disease.

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
Alright, i don‘t have anything wrong with my lungs fortunately

In that case, you don't need to worry at all.
