Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Lysol (disinfectant solution) is a very toxic and highly irritant chemical and is XXXXXXX if ingested. It can cause a wide range of toxicity like corrosion, pain, nausea, vomiting, sweating, diarrhoea, neurological problems, circulatory and respiratory failure, pulmonary edema, myocardial and damage, liver and kidney dysfunction.

PLEASE TAKE THE PERSON TO THE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT IMMEDIATELY FOR EVALUATION AND TREATMENT.

Wish you all the best.

Regards,
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar

Even a small quantity (few ml) can cause corrosions, ulcerations or even bleeding in the esophagus and stomach. Larger quantities may cause more serious systemic effects involving the major organs.

But we cannot take any risk. That is why any patient who has ingested even a small quantity of such corrosive poisons should be assessed and treated promptly.
