Painting Over a Linseed Oil Finish on Furniture

My new custom made bed (pine) was treated with linseed oil. I was assured it's non-toxic. Well, it has been 2 weeks, and the bed still emits an odor. It gives me a sore throat and cough. What can be done? Can I paint it over with a latex paint? I am allergic to all household chemicals, so the paint should contain no VOCs.

Any other way to fix this predicament?
I'd appreciate advice. Thank you!

Try washing it with a damp cloth, mix water and vinegar,about half & half. You need to ask a place that sells paint about painting over it, good luck.
