Can food sprayed by a disinfectant 5 days ago cause a health concern if consumed ?

I ingested some candy that may have come in contact with disenfectant spray about 2 nhours ago, i don t feel any discumfort, and I am not even sure it did come in contact with the disinfectant spray, I saw my mother use it aroud the candy about 5 days ago, so if it even came to contact with it, it would only be a little, and only residue, am i crazy or is it still dangerous?

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
It is not advisable to use disinfectant spray on food items as there can be chemical burns in the mouth, throat, food pipe and cause vomiting. If you get cough, nausea, abdominal pain, you may go to the ER to get it looked at immediately.

Hello, Welcome to HCM. Consuming edicle items contaminated with disinfactants can be veru harmfull for health. Be carefull in future to avoid such incidences. You need not worry if you are not having any symptoms like nausea, vomiting, headache, fever rashness or burning sensation in throat. You should consult your doctor if you have any of these sympoms. Wish you good health.

There is nothing to worry because the spray would have long evaporated.see if you feel nausea(vomitting sensation),or if you feel sick.

My husband has been throwing up and having diarrhea today. I m 32 weeks pregnant and terrified of getting it so I used a crazy amount of Lysol disinfect spray on everything in the bathroom and on the floors. I didn t realize how much I was using until I was done and the areas were soaked in it. I had on latex gloves and a mask but it wasn t a very good one. Could I have harmed myself or my baby? I m kind of freaking out.

Hello doctor, I accidentally consumed less than one ounce of lysol disinfectant. The poison control center said it s fine as its Ph is 5.0 which is less than the limit of 7.0. But i am worried if it could caused any internal damage. What would you suggest? Thanks!

Yes, I have a 13 yr old that has been vomiting and has had constipated/diarrhea for a month now. She has been seen by her physician and was prescribed Prilosec and miralax. She appears to be full of stool ( according to her x-ray). She is still having dull stabbing pain in her stomach and is still vomiting daily. She expresses vomiting is not always with nausea. I hope she will not need an endoscopy. I am wondering if it s GERD or IBS. Thanks for your response.

My daughter is nine years old. She complains that her heart hurts or that it flutters or feels weird. Sometimes this is accompanied with vomiting and the shakes. Sometimes she says she feels like she can’t breathe right. She sweats a lot in her sleep or if she is active always seems to be a lot more than other kids. She is constantly thirsty. She has been to see a gastro, pulmonologist, and a cardiologist. She has been checked for asthma and was fine; they put her on an inhaler for when she is active. She had an EEG which was normal. She may have a mild reflux but not severe. She was also checked for Diabetes and came back negative. I feel like we are missing something help.

I have a 10 year old son that is very athletic, but is having terrible problems with constipation. After a rigorous ordeal with regards to his constipation, he lost 4-5 lbs of stool. Our pediatrician recommended Miralax BID, which causes him to have small stools, but he feels his stomach is fat or bloated and he just doesn t feel good. No nausea or vomiting. We have a friend that deals in homeopathic, kinesiology medicine and he thinks he has an overgrowth of yeast. He has a crack in his lower lip that has been very difficult to heal. We are getting very frustrated.
