Coughing, throat discomfort after using bleach for cleaning. Should I seek medical attention?

I cleaned my classroom using a cleaner with bleach today. While it initially caused coughing and a scratchy throat , my throat has become increasingly sore and swollen feeling throughout the evening. I almost feel like I can t breath and constantly feel the urge to clear my throat. Will this get better or should I seek medical attention before the morning?
