My Toddler Swallowed Lysol Disinfectant
I sprayed my bathroom with Milton disinfectant then sprayed Dettol disinfectant over it, is this dangerous?
Look up chemistry: Milton disinfectant: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milton_sterilizing_fluid contains sodium hypochlorite, a potent/toxic oxidizing agent. Dettol: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dettol contains chloroxylenol, another chlorine molecule based toxic agent; other agents added to cover up perception of toxic smells. Highest toxicity is to lungs. Best avoid breathing fumes & wear respirator mask if use. ...Read more
My kid painted on paper,I touchd paper wen dry & accidentally touchd my tongue funny taste.quickly rinsd my mouth thoroughly.7wk Pregnant.Harm baby?
Wouldn't think so: What you describe does not bring any concerns to mind. The type of paints kids have access to are non toxic & for something to affect baby the material would need to achieve a detectable level in your blood & be toxic. From your description I can't see that happening. ...Read more

No harm, no worries: As you can imagine, such mistaken use is very common for all cosmetics, personal hygiene products, etc. In the US, it would not be legal to market them unless they were safe regardless of such mistakes. The same applies to soaps, deodorants, perfumes, etc -- if you can buy it in a store, probably it's safe in small amounts like this. Don't worry about it! ...Read more

Is washing my hands 4 times,wiping my hands with alcohol prep pads,using fingernail polish remover under my nails&hand sanitizer enough to kill sprem?
Depends: I would advise you not swallow dish washing soap. Depending on the chemical makeup of the soap you could suffer bad consequences. Most bar soaps are non toxic. But some soap can cause symptoms like diarrhea, vomiting, convulsions and decreased alertness. If you do accidently swallow dishwashing soap make sure you have the national poison control center telephone number handy. Watch those bubbles! ...Read more

If any eye, nose, throat, chest irritation that does not resolve in 1-2 hours or gets worse, see your doctor. Hope this was helpful. Best of luck. Dr. R ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

While washing my face in the shower, I accidentally inhaled soap that went into my nose. Is this okay?? My nose burns a bit. It was dove bar soap.
Don't worry: The soap might slightly irritate your nose but it will not cause any lasting problems. It should be fine by tomorrow. It would have been good to try to flush out your nose with water.
