COLDS and BLEECH
« on: 14/01/2007 15:27:14 »
Last weekend i gave the tiles in my bathroom a bleaching to get the grouting back to white which unfortunately involved the inhalation of bleach fumes.
Would the inhalation of the bleach fumes be enough to kill the friendly bacteria in my nasal cavity throat etc

Would that then allow the worse than normal cold virus which I'm now suffering from to take over .

OOOH that sounds Icky! I know sometimes bleach can make the old nostrils burn like crazy if it is too strong!! can actually be overcome by the fumes.. you should be careful and make sure you get plenty of ventilation.... when you do that! Yikes .. Hope you feel better soon. It does seem possible though, but I don't know..it's a good question!
