Hi Doctor, I have 1 year old son and he is suffering from fever and cold. My doctor has given Nasivion 0.01% drops. My wife thought that we should feed the medicine to my baby and she did it. Later she realized that that medicine is for external use onl

Do not worry: A mistake was made and u have learnt from it. NASIVION orally will do him no harm in the small amount u must have used. No side effects will result. So do not worry. For such and similar perceived poisonings u shd keep the 24 hour poison control center phone numbers in New Delhi, India. They will respond quicker than ur doctors and such portals.
