hello and welcome to HCM,
I have understood you concern regarding the inhalation of chlorine.
In any inhalation related injury
, the first treatment or the initial treatment which you received is important and also the symptoms are seen only in the acute phase. Since chlorine is a light gas, it will usually get dissolute or eliminated from the body via the lungs or the kidney
in a matter of one to two weeks.
If you are feeling sore you may start an antibiotic like the amoxycillin-clavulanate
625 twice daily and pantoprazole
twice daily. Your doctor will know about the same. Also add an antihistamine for around two weeks in consultation with your doctor.
Wait for at least one month for the symptoms to recover and if you still have breathing problem then you need to get an upper GI endoscopy
and also an X ray of the chest and consult either a respiratory physician or an ENT
Hope you get well soon
Dr Sriram Nathan
