Handling When Accidentally Drinking A Floor Cleaner?
In the afternoon I want to ask. This afternoon I made coffee and wanted to add water to my coffee. Without deliberately I unconsciously poured the floor cleaning fluid.
Hello Grace, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Lanatai cleaning fluid is not recommended for consumption even though it has been mixed with other drinks though or in the smallest possible amount because it can cause irritation / injury to the esophagus / gastrointestinal tract until adhesions in the esophagus / digestive tract.
Because you already already drink this fluid, although at present there are no complaints, it is still advisable to continue to see a doctor for evaluation to ascertain whether there is indeed no interference and what therapy should be given based on the results of the examination.
Meanwhile, besides going to the doctor, it is also recommended to:
Do not drink the coffee further Give a special label on the liquid floor cleaner or other hazardous liquids and put it apart from where you store / make drinks so that events like this do not recur. Do not use a used drink bottle as a container to store floor cleaning liquid or other liquid that is not suitable for drinking Increase consumption of water at least 2 liters a day Do not take any medicine without clear advice from your doctor If complaints arise such as burning sensation in the throat, shortness of breath, severe vomiting, pain / difficulty in swallowing or decreased consciousness immediately to the hospital emergency room to get further action. Hope it helps.
