IS IT BAD TO BREATH PERLITE DUST?
    #502737 - 12/27/01 10:43 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

I emptied a tank filled with perlite and when I did i breathed in some of the dust and some got in my eyes. I washed my eyes out with water, and used an inhaler (I don't have asthma I just got it when I had bronchitis, I figured it couldn't hurt) Is that really bad for my health? Is there anything I should do?

ITs about the same as breathing in little shards of glass... seriously. Wear a dust mask. I'm sure you didnt inflict any serious wounds to your lungs, but I'd be careful next time you do it

Inhalers expand your aveoli (little sacs in your lungs that give more surface volume for co2 and o2 exchange) so it's not a good idea to use one of those as a remedy for breathing in perlite dust.

People who work with this substance all day, like in a nursery, might have some concerns.

A brief exposure like yours shouldn't result in any harm. I think the vermiculite dust is worse!
