Each of these can then lead to another. There are two types of sensory irritation, therefore, appear in the literature on indoor climate and air quality. The primary sensory irritation caused by direct stimulation of sensory cells by environmental exposure and the secondary irritation due to changes in the skin, mucous membranes or other tissues.
Inflammation is characterized by a sensation of heat (“calor"), red (“rubor"), swelling (“tumor"), pain (“angry") and certain loss of function in the affected tissues.
