Rinse nose out: You may wish to try rinsing your nose out with water. The sensation will disappear on its own, but rinsing out the nose may hasten the process.
Inhaling bleach: Bleach is a respiratory irritant. It releases chlorine gas at the cell level. Chlorine gas is a direct cell toxin. It will cause coughing can cause chest pain and can cause fluid accumulation in the lungs. Its not something you should be doing on a regular basis. - use plenty of ventilaton and never mix bleach and ammonia - that will really cause problems.
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.

I inhaled too much zonrox while cleaning bathroom 4 hrs ago I used 1/4 pure bottle of bleach. I had head ache. What can I do to make me feel better?
Fresh are: Get out into the fresh air. The symptoms from the zonrox should abate. You should also change your clothes and shower.
Inhaled chloring gas: Chlorine gas is a potent oxydizer when it contacts moist surfaces in your throat, nose and lungs. Get to fresh air as soon as possible. When possible rinse the areas with water to dilute the chlorine. Always use bleach in well ventilated areas.
Urgent medical care: Samantha, inhalation of chlorine irritates the lung tissue. Household exposure to chlorine vapors usually causes mild symptoms. I don't know how long ago you were exposed but since you continue to cough you may have had a more moderate exposure which can cause a chemical irritant induced asthma. it would be best to go to your nearest emergency department for evaluation and treatment right away.
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.
