The Immediate Symptoms of Lead Paint Poisoning

Although it has been banned in the United States since the late 1970s, there are still a number of homes and other buildings across the country with lead-based paint inside and outside. Lead paint is extremely dangerous if ingested or inhaled and can cause serious long-term side effects. If a property owner or landlord doesn’t properly inform guests or tenants of the presence of lead paint, they are putting innocent lives at risk.

Early Symptoms of Lead Poisoning

When lead-based paint begins to chip, it can release small particles in the air as well as large chunks of paint on the ground that can be easily inhaled or ingested. When lead enters the body, it can cause immediate damage. Some of the most common symptoms include the following:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Restlessness
  • Discoloration along the gum line

These initial symptoms eventually progress to more severe health consequences. Make sure you seek medical attention immediately if you experience any of the above.
