Question: Doctors, My kid has accidentally ingested around 50ml of harpic. My wife had immediately rushed her to hospital and the doctor gave medication (neutraliser type )and said nothing to worry. however I'm not convinced as she was not made to vomit or given any treatment like flushing out contents from stomach. kindly advise what the doctor had given is the right treatment or do we need to do something more for her treatment. Also please confirm if this will have any long term impact in her body like indigestion, ulcer, eye problem or anything else.

Brief Answer:
Need not worry

Detailed Answer:

Sorry for the delayed response.

There is no need to worry.

For sure there will be no long term complications.

Usually cleaning liquids which have phenol compounds will have acute problems like gastric erosion . This happens few hours of ingestion. If the baby is stable now. I would suggest you to not worry.

Wish you good health.
