Welcome to the forum. Ideally after a thorough stomach wash, side effects like nausea, pain abdomen, dizziness, etc can occur. Symptomatic treatment is done, you need not worry. She will be monitored 24-48 hours for any infection or side effect. If you see any reactions within this period you should report immediately to your treating doctor.

Intake of such a liquid, indicates that she is disturbed for some reason. If she remains fine, it is okay. Else, you should take the help of a counselor or a psychiatrist. Do not leave her all alone for a month or so.

Give her family support, keep her well hydrated and give nutritious food so that she will be fine soon. Take care.

Hi thanks for your question..
Since the amount was less 100 ml only and she has recived stomach wash,there is nothing to worry.Lizol can produce burns of mouth, esophagus and stomach,for which she need treatment in the form of antacid and proton pump blocker,which i think your Doctor must have given to her.
Hope this answers your question.
