Hi,

Thank you for your query.

By nibbling nothnig much of the medicine must have gone in the child's system. Nevertheless, induce vomiting so that the medicine is removed before absorption. However this needs to be done within 1 hour of ingestion.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction. Please feel free to revert back in case you need any clarifications or would like to share more facts of the case.

Wishing your daughter all the best.

Regards,

RKK
