Help! DS and I were exposed to Fungicide spraying!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am so upset but truly trying to check this out, calmly...

DS (2 1/2 yrs. old) and I walked into an area where they were &%$!!! spraying a fungicide on a tree. The chemicals were Banner/Dithane. We didn't actually get soaked with it but DS was ahead of me, running down the driveway of our neighbor's house (where we have a little garden in back.) The men spraying stopped when they saw me but that was after DH was already pretty near. he wasn't damp and I didn't see anything on him. We ran upstairs and I stripped him and washed him down as best i could (The hot water was turned off in our apt building so I was only able to wash him down with cold and soap on his exposed areas.) I myself took a freezing cold shower.
I honestly don't know though if we inhaled any.

Does anyone know about exposure to these things and where I might find out about toxicity. I've done a search on the internet but nowhere do i find specific dangers in relation to exposure amounts.

Thanks,
iris

Dunno if you've checked here or not...

But the EPA would probably have that sort of information, available either online or with a phone call.

Gezellig_girl, Thanks, You're right, why didn't I think of that??? I actually called them just last week when our aptartment Super posted a sign noting "please don't go in basement - Asbestos cleaning" . !!!! I called them a'plenty for about a week. Aargh, as ! said to my DH last night, I feel like I am fending off environmental assaults right a left lately. What do i need to learn here? Maybe I should also post in "Spirituality."

Thanks again for the good idea.
