This should be safe but since I don't know which meds you will be given check this chart to be sure: http://tinyurl.com/lnmoojl Also see http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17283738 and http://tinyurl.com/l9pdmjd A healthy diet is important too.

How much?: Did he take a whole fish oil capsule or just swallow some liquid- I don't think that should be a problem Same for the wheat germ- I would feed him normally and if he has vomiting, diarrhea or does not poop in the next 24 hours to take him to your local doctor.

Do you recommend wheat germ oil for acne and scars?

Do you recommend wheat germ oil for acne and scars?

Get a real Rx: I suspect that these internet remedies are cruel pranks. It's not going to touch either active disease or scars. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated has not cleared your active disease in two weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength rx. Only a specialist with a laser, filler, or microsurgery can make the scars less visible. ...Read more

Child should be ok: Fish oil caps are intended for maintenance use and if mercury content was high, it would not be safe for adults either. About 6 oz of wild salmon will provide about 2000 mg of DHA, and it is thought that infants over 6 months can have up to 3 oz a week, so avoid further fish in your infants diet for the next few weeks to be sure. ...Read more
