look for progressive symptoms

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Though phenyl 100ml is not huge amount to cause severe problems but when drank may cause problems.

As he has vomited and drank milk that amount of phenyl must have expelled out by now.

I would suggest you to keep a watch on the symptoms like repeated vomiting, agitation, seizures (fit's attack), abdominal pain etc. If he develops any one among these then show to emergency department immediately and get further treatment.

If nothing among these happens for 2 days then he is completely out of danger. 2 days observation is needed.

Hope I have answered your query . If any further queries are there I would love to help.

Regards
Dr.Deepika Patil

better to show to doctor

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

It could be just gastritis causing problem to him but since he has drunk phenyl I would suggest him to consult doctor/physician and get examined as he is still getting symptoms.

If everything is fine then gastritis treatment would be initiated.

Hope I have answered your query .
