Mixing : Mixing bleach and ammonia can create choramine vapor which is toxic. If you cleaned your own apartment and are still in it, you and who ever else lives in the apartment should exit it immediately and get to fresh air. Do not re-enter the area where the gases were mixed. If you cleaned someone else's apartment, you need to contact the police so that they can ensure they have not been impacted by toxic fumes. It is likely that you inhaled poisonous vapors. Recommend that you call 911 for emergency assistance. Follow their advice. You need to be medically evaluated emergently. Call poison control at 1-800-222-1222 after you have been medically cleared. They can provide you on instructions on how to work with the area contaminated by toxic gas. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I accidently mixed pamolive soap with clorox bleach spray to clean my kitchen sink & it smelled bad for like 3 mins is it okay if i breastfeed still?
Go to ER: Bleach fumes can cause injury to the lung and cause coughing and shortness of breath. If a mild exposure the symptoms go away shortly, but if you are continuing to have breathing difficulty you should go to ER now. You might be having bronchial spasm(asthma) or a chemical pneumonia. You will need a chest x ray and measurement of oxygen saturation in your blood. ...Read more

Chlorine burn: Appears that you have sustained a chlorine irritation / burn to your naso-pharynx-tracheal-bronchial tissues. If external, the immediate remedyvis long ice cold water rinsing. You cannot do much of that, but prolonged mouthwashing, gargling, and nasal washing can help. Then, you need an inhaler. Saline breathing treatments may help but best is a metered dose steroid inhaler. So see a prescriber ...Read more
Would 5 min of inhaling bleach fumes while i cleaned the bathroom be cause for concern if my baby inhaled it?
Depends: No, assuming you are pregnant and it is YOU who inhaled the bleach. If a baby was actually inhaling it ALSO, you should both go outdoors and get lots of fresh air. If either is having any trouble breathing, noisy breathing or wheezing or drooling, draining, or irritated eyes and it doesn't go away quickly with fresh air, then you should see someone. Ventilate well always when using bleach. ...Read more
