Give the child plenty of water and fluids to drink

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

The first thing that I would like to suggest is not to panic. Lizol contains hypoclorite solution and in such small doses it is unlikely to cause any harm. I would suggest you to give the child plenty of water and fluids to drink so that his system gets flushed. Observe for any unexpected signs. In case it seems that the child is not doing well, you should visit the ER and get the child evaluated.

Hope that helps.
