I inhaled to much chlorine while washing the bathroom with bleach and I am having difficulty breathing. I cleaned it in a closed room.
It is imperative: that you leave the bathroom and get fresh air (out doors). Chlorine is denser than air -so don't lie in a low area. Seek medical care as soon as possible. In the United States - we usually have the fire department enter the room first to ensure that cause of chlorine gas is removed and that area is properly ventilated. ...Read more

Avoid chlorine: Chlorine allergy is potentially dangerous and harmful and can cause mild to severe symptoms. In some cases, a chlorine allergy may be a nuisance, while in others it may be life-threatening. It is important to identity any chlorine allergies to determine if chlorine exposure is a problem for you. Swimming pools use a large concentration of chlorine that can aggravate chlorine sensitivity. ...Read more
Irritant reaction: A true ige mediated allergy to chlorine is not reported; however, chlorine is a potent irritant and in high concentrations causes irritation to the eyes, nose, lungs and skin. A very large accidental inhalation of chlorine gas could damage the lungs and cause symptoms like acute asthma. There is no blood or skin test to confirm sensitivity to chlorine. As a potent irritant, try to limit exposure. ...Read more

Studies have suggested that frequent swimming in chlorinated pools and exposure to cleaning products containing chlorine may increase the risk of developing asthma and other respiratory allergies, both in adolescents and in adults. ...Read more
