Thanks for the query

You need immediate help. Please go to the emergency room immediately

Domex is a corrosive acid; and consuming it might lead to corrosion of your inner organs.

You need to be put on injectable steroids to prevent that and other complications like structures.
Please go to the ER immediately.

Hope I have been helpful to you. Please let me know if you need further help.

Thanks for the help. Now the condition is stable. But, how do you justify a reply after 5 hrs of emergency. I was charged 149 immediately and a mail for solution was received after 1 day. Its disgusting.
