Lizol contains cresols with active ingredient being benzalkonium chloride. These are strong acids that damage the lining of the food pipe and stomach. They burn the lining leading to bleeding of the gut.

The severity of damage depends on the amount of liquid swallowed and symptoms that appeared. It looks like your brother is fine now.

Just keep a watch on his breathing, check if the vomitus has blood or blood in the stool. If he has difficulty breathing or has blood oozing, please take the nearest emergency. Also please do not give water or milk if he is having symptoms further symptoms such as vomiting, convulsions, or a decreased level of alertness, rush to Emergency.

However it is prudent to get a general examination by regular physician tomorrow even if nothing happens till morning.

I think he is doing well. Do not feed him.

Let him while away till you XXXXXXX the doctor. You can give him cold milk.
