Hi,
Thank you for contacting Healthcare magic.
Volini gel contains the pain killer Diclofenac- a non steroidal anti-inflammatory agent. If a kid tastes it, very small amount of drug may get absorbed into the system. Howecer, this small amount of the drug is unlikely to cause any adverse effect.
So, at this point, there is no need to worry. Keep a close watch regarding any vomiting, etc.
Please get back if you have more queries.
Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD (Medicine) DM (Neurology)

Thank you for getting back with more details.
The main component of the spray also is diclofenac.
And the amount of methyl alcohol is too small to cause any harm.
Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM
