you need at least a N95 mask. 3M makes them. look in Homepro in the paint dept.

Homepro or most other home stores.

Here I bought some N95 at Global.

And DON'T think that these "nurse" health masks have any use for particulate matter pollution.

That's what you often see people wearing.

Regular face masks don’t protect well against outside pollutants and infectants. They are designed to prevent the wearer from spreading his or her germs to others. 

If you want to be protected from the outside you need a gas mask or at least a mask with a decent fit around your face that’s fitted with a filter.

I bought a load online from Lazada. Homepro and Fascino have them too.

Fascino on Pattaya Tai across from Wat Chaimongkron has some 3M 88xx (something) masks that look like the 88xx (something else) N95 mask I got from Lazada, 10 for 660. Fascino sells its masks for 70 baht. Try for the discount.

Why bother. I laugh when I see people walking around with them. They look ridiculas.

I once bought the cheap ones from a pharmacy in soi 4, Jomtien. I used to hand them out to the various ladies who were dusting and sweeping up at the guest house I stayed in.

I dunno, stops the girls yelling out my name when I ride down Soi Pothole; mostly. 

It doesn't look ridiculous to me!
