Impact Of A 6-month-old Baby Swallowing Ash From Mosquito Coils?
Morning … I want to ask, my child is 6 months old, he has already been crawling … And he is still able to burn mosquito coils … Is that dangerous?
Hello Milla, Thank you for the question.
Consuming the residual ash from burning mosquito coils can harm the body because of the toxin content in it. The danger to the body will be even greater if the amount consumed is large and for a long time. Although it is potentially dangerous to your baby's health, for now, what you can do is monitor your child's condition for the appearance of certain symptoms such as vomiting, flatulence, diarrhea, fever, fuss, and others. If your child does not experience any symptoms, there is nothing to worry about right now. However, if you are still concerned about your child's current condition, do not hesitate to immediately consult with a pediatrician in person. The doctor will examine your child to find out his condition.
Later on, considering that your child has started crawling, you should pay more attention to your child. Make sure the surrounding environment is safe for your child. You can use a guardrail to limit the area where your child moves.
I hope this helps.
