Unsure if son swallowed superglue, developed chesty cough and temperature. Suggestions?

My son had a tube of superglue in his mouth but I'm not 100% sure as to if he swalled any or not? When I took it off him I made him drink... But since this he has developed a chesty cough and a bit of a temperature. He seems okay as hes still playing etc but is very clingy at the same time. Is there anything I need to do or should do?

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

What is his respiratory rate now?

Is he breathing fast?

These super glues have a very good at sticking the wrong things. I think it is better that your kid be examined by a doctor for the needful.

I also request you to keep your home child proof further to prevent such accidents from happening.

Hope this helps.
take care.
