What are the symptoms of poisoning in a child?
Should I be concerned?
I won't get worried as there are no symptoms suggestive of toxicity
Thanks for asking on this platform
I can understand your concern.
As per your history the chances of ingestion are very less and even if there is a possibilty; if ingested in very small quantity it does not has any side effect.
I won't get worried as more than 6 hours have been passed and there are no symptoms suggestive of toxicity.
I would suggest you to watch for signs of toxicity like vomiting,pain abdomen,rapid breathing,cool extremities or perspiration and if you notice any consult your pediatrician.
Give him plenty of fluids with frequent feeds.
I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you have any more query.
Wishing for your baby's good health.
