My husband put bleach water in our toddlers humidifier. She has runny and stuffy nose with a cough and 1 side of my throat is sore. Is it the bleach?

In brief: Bleach in humidifier

it's possible but should not cause long term symptoms.
I would run a cycle or two with distilled water before using it in the room again
