6hr ago>ate food & felt sick, so took activ. Charcoal. 1hr ago>still nauseous & took 2 more. Now>urge to vomit every 15 min (holding in). Must vomit?
I accidentally inhaled activated charcoal. I'm coughing it up and drinking lots of water. Can breathe but it's irritating. What now?
Self limited cough: I am assuming you inhaled dust particles and not throwing up activated charcoal that you swallowed for poisoning . The dust particles are inert and probably will do no more than to make you cough for awhile. I would not expect any long term problem. If you inhaled vomitus then you are more in danger of 'aspiration pneumonia' due to the acid that can irritate the lungs. If so go to doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

On Thursday I had a very black charcoal stool and then very bad stomach pains and Friday I had stomach pains and now a little blood comes with cough ?
NOT good if melena: Dark-colored stools may result from iron supplements, foods you eat (like a lot of spinach), substances (like peptobismol), but most significantly suggests bleeding. When blood is denatured by acid in your stomach, as from ulcers, stools will turn tarry ("melena"). Blood may also be ingested from nose bleeds, bleeding gums. Stop any nsaid's you're taking & call your doctor ASAP for evaluation. ...Read more
I burned the sole of my foot with a charcoal. Infected with 12-hours - antibiotics. Now the joint on top of my foot hurts. Should I go back to doctor?
I subscribe to: The theory that anytime there is a change in the condition I want my patient to inform me. I never get mad at a patient for asking me something but do if they don't and then something happens.....so, call them. Burns/infections need to be monitored closely....is your tetanus history up to date? Did you get a tetanus booster? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have heard of & have seen paramedics carrying activated charcoal. What is this used for and what effect does it have?
Soaks up poison: Activated charcoal is used when a person has taken a poison overdose of some sort, including an overdose of certain medications. It used to be that syrup of ipecac was used to induce vomiting, but that can be dangerous in some situations, so is no longer used. Colleagues? Correct me if i'm wrong on this.
