Lizol floor cleaner has chemical substances which are acidic in nature. Hence the acid cleaner can corrode the tissues of the human body that it reaches especially mouth, oesophagus and stomach.

I suggest to take your child to the local hospital immediately without wasting time. Every minute is precious and you should only relax when the first aid is done and the serious consequences are ruled out.

Hope this helps you.
