What are the Effects of Mustard Gas?

Maybe not right away but eventually you would see red spots forming on skin, that quickly turned into painful blisters.
But if you get a direct attack and inhale the Mustard Gas, it wouldn't take long before you feel the pain and swelling in your nose and throat as the blisters formed closing your airway.
