The new addition is closed off from the rest of my house two days ago they primed my walls - my eyes are burning, chest feels horrible - how long does this last - I actually went online and someone said to cut up an onion and put it in water and sit it around in the room - didn't work.....not sure this stuff should pass EPA....

What primer is it exactly?!??!!?
Are there some cans around?

One key is ventilation/air-exchanges. Put a fan in a window blowing OUT.
Find some wide flat trays/boxes/etc., and put ~1/4" of Baking-Soda in each one. The key to this is SURFACE AREA!
