Как понять, что ребенок отравился бытовой химией

Acting Minister of health of Ukraine Ulyana Suprun told how the child manifests poisoning by household chemicals. Writes referring to “channel 24”.

According to her, every month in our country recorded about 20 cases of poisoning of children with household chemicals. Often this is due to the carelessness of parents or relatives who did not hide banned substances from the kids. Ulyana Suprun noted that the most severe manifestations of this type of poisoning are chemical burns of the esophagus. In this case, a child has had excessive drooling. In addition, the kid can complain on problem swallowing. With self-examination of the child, adults are able to notice the swelling of the mucous membrane of the lips. Baby looks lethargic and refuses to eat. Besides, he had nausea and vomiting. The following stage – increase in body temperature, which may be followed by frequent and shallow breathing.

In this case, Suprun recommends that you do not hesitate to call an ambulance. While doctors are in the way, try to give the kid first aid. First you need to rinse your mouth child. Then give the child the absorbent, water or milk. But to call yourself vomiting is impossible. It is fraught with repeated burns of the esophagus.
