Call this #: You can call The American Association of Poison Control Centers 24/7 at (800) 222-1222. This way you can get an immediate response. I am not a pediatrician -so I won't try to answer your question, but some Health Tap questions are not answered for hours or days. The general health education site on Health Tap can't replace poison control or your child's care providers.
