Hi, you have a high chance of inhaling the chemicals in those strong bleaches and solutions. They do destroy the soft,gentle mucosa of your nose ,throat and airways.there may be some swelling and inflammation of the airways leading to their narrowing and resulting breathing difficulty.You better see a doc to relieve your symptoms, sometimes these conditions may aggravate.
