Call poison control: If your child had ingested something like hand sanitizer, you should call poison control. The nationwide number is 1-800-222-1222. They can determine if the hand sanitizer has anything in it that could be causing the rash or if there are any other side effects. Please call the number as soon as possible.

Rash in toddler : Very unlikely related to hand sanitizer. Most likely atopic dermatitis, irritant dermatitis, or contact dermatitis.
