Is The Cough Medicine Accidentally Entered Into The Eyes Of An 11 Month Baby?
, my child is coughing again then I want to give medicine suddenly the child shakes his head not want to take medicine eh accidentally his eyes have cough medicine. The question is dangerous is not my child just 11 months. Thank you
Hello Ira, thank you for asking.
Actually, it would be better if you complete the information about the composition of the cough medicine, so we can examine whether there is a dangerous composition. In general, cough medicines usually contain cough suppressants, sputum thinners, anti-histamine, decongestants, anti-inflammatory, and fever-lowering. Not all types of cough medicines have all of these compositions. However, if a drug is safe for consumption into the body, it is very likely that the drug will not have a bad effect if it is exposed to the skin or mucous membranes (for example, the eyes).
There may be a mild irritation reaction in the form of redness of the eyes or pain. But generally this will improve by itself. You can also wash the eye area with warm boiled water. Use a wet cloth to clean the eyes, so that if there is medication left in the eyelid, the drug does not enter the eye again. If you see the child's eyes continue to become irritated the next day, immediately bring the child to see a doctor.
Thus short information from me. May be useful. Regards.
