Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
This appears to be an allergic reaction to the chemicals you have used for cleaning. You need to consult your doctor for a thorough examination. For your nasal congestion and throat pain you can use saline nasal drops 3-4times/day, drink plenty of warm water and do steam inhalation.
Take care
