What Is an Allergic Reaction to Bleach?

An allergic reaction to bleach and other strong cleaning products falls into the irritant contact dermatitis category of skin ailments, according to the Mayo Clinic. Symptoms of this type of allergic reaction include a red rash or bumps, itching, cracked patches of skin, blisters filled with and draining fluid, and pain or tenderness. While the rash from contact dermatitis typically goes away on its own, see a doctor at any sign of infection.
