Hi I put castor oil and coconut oil mix on to my eyelashes, some of it got into my eyes now they are hurting. What should I do?

Hi  I put castor oil and coconut oil mix on to my eyelashes,  some of it got into my eyes now they are hurting. What should I do?

Natural tearing will also wash the products out eventually, and really this shouldn't take more than few minutes to happen. My guess is that by the time you read this, you'll already feel better. Don't wipe the surface of your eye with any object, or you can do harm. ...Read more

What parasites?: Different drugs are used for different parasites, so a drug can then be recommended based on effectiveness and safety. Although there is no specific data on breast feeding and castor oil, it is reported that very little of the active ingredient in castor oil is absorbed from the intestine, so levels would be very low in B milk and would pass out of the colon with a bowel movement. ...Read more

No: How many times have you heard of people dying of ingesting castor oil. Now it could be a vast coverup but think about it. A company would have to be manufacturing a quite deadly poison and convincing people to buy and use it. And their marketing plan would be terrible because they would have no repeat business. No. It's safe. It's mainly to relieve constipation and for that they do have repeat bus ...Read more
