Sorry for delayed response.

Lysol is a disinfectant and is unsuitable for human consumption.

The first thing to do is to induce vomiting, which you have already done. Also give him some olive oil or other vegetable oil. Wash any lysol that may have spilled on his skin. If he sleeps it will be difficult to monitor any deterioration in mental functioning. Next course of action has to be taken in a hospital. He has to be kept under medical supervision for treating any symptoms of toxicity.

The symptoms of toxicity can be corrosion in the gut, nausea vomiting, sweating, diarhea, CNS depression, circulatory collapse, respiratory failure, liver and kidney dysfunction.

Take care
