What to do after child swallowed Listerine and feeling nauseous?

My 36 month old swallowed an unknown amount of listerene for kids. he says he swallowed some and he says he spit it out....its been about five minutes and he feels a little nautious like he may throw up. What should I do? I know he didn't down the whole bottle but I would guess a couple of genours swallows.
