I experienced second hand smoke for about 7 hours a few days ago; I've never been exposed to smoke before, but I couldn't avoid the situation. I'm very concerned, and have been drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day, flushing my eyes, brushing my teeth often, etc in an attempt to get rid of headaches (that hurt from behind my forehead/eyebrows) and any other effects the smoke might be having on me. How can I stop these headaches and get this smoke out of my system faster?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!
I read your question and I understand your concern.
You can avoid this by wearing face mask and by avoiding such places and companies where people are smoking. You might have sinusitis. I would suggest you to have xray paranasal sinuses to sort it out.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
