Battery Corrosion Dust Cause Serious Effect On Lungs ?

default
Posted on Fri, 19 Apr 2024
Question: I recently had to get a new battery for my car. While the employee was changing out the corroded battery and putting in the new one, he dusted off of the battery corrosion dust into my face. It did irritate my lungs a tiny bit. That was not only rude but I just found out that I’m pregnant. Is my baby going to fine?

Hi,
I have read your query and understood your concern.
The dust would have caused an irritation of you nasal mucosa wich could have resulted in allergic symptoms such as watery discharge, sneezing, congestion. I dont see any harm that can be caused to the baby considering the type of exposure.
