So pepper spray invokes an inflammatory response in the mucus membranes (eyes, ears, nose, etc.). Accordingly any of the points that pull this away would be helpful - UB 2, Bitong, Biyan, LU 7, LI 4, TH 5, etc.

While in no way complete lists - our lung wind heat section has relevant points and our section on possibly helpful points for sinusitis would offer some others.

In addition to the points @Chad_Dupuis mentioned I would probably add a few points to deal with the acute trauma and shock of the experience. So some Shen calming points like GV 20, HT 7, and YinTang.
