What will happen if a small amount of insulin has gone inside my kids mouth ?

My daughter had grabbed my husbands insulin bottle and dropped it on the floor. The bottle broke. My husband said that when he came back into the kitchen, he noticed daughter had the insulin bottle up to mouth. If she had drunk some, how much would it take to cause something to her and could it hurt her?

Wel come to HCM
read your prob, dont worry, insulin is easily diagestable n has not any side effect when take it orally. the only side effect is gastritis n abdominal pain, so you should give her colimax drop only three tims a day.
