What Happens When You Swallow Bleach?

Answer

Depending on the amount you swallow and the size and age you are, bleach can possibly cause a variety of painful symptoms that effect you circulatory, respiratory, digestive, and nervous system. A few of these symptoms include such stomach pain, burning mouth, vomiting, coughing, low blood pressure, shock, and coma. The fumes from bleach can also effect your senses and bleach on your skin can cause burning. A very minor amount will cause some irritation at most, but swallowing a significant amount is cause for concern. If you swallow bleach (regardless of the amount) it's best to call poison control.
