What do you suggest if my friend drunk a bottel cap of toilet cleaning phenoyl if it will dangerous please tell me about its effets?
Probably too late: to do anything about it. Asking on Healthtap is not what I would advise in an emergency = there are poison control center hotlines in every city. If this friend drank phenol, even a bottlecap full may be highly toxic and s/he needs to go to the nearest emergency department, preferably in a Trauma Center if that is available. Since it is caustic, and may be combined with acids it needs expert care ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Good luck ...Read more

I have a 3 yr old son, he wasn't surcumsised, when will the head on the penis start to come out? I'm not sure what to do or what's going on, when i wash him he really complains that it hurts not sure what to do.
Be gentle: It is normal for an uncircumcised boy to have "phimosis" trapping the head of the penis within the foreskin. Aggressively retracting the foreskin to force the glans out or tearing at the adhesions can cause significant pain and lingering problems including recurrent adhesions.
