Patient

Q: Have vomited, almost everything in my stomach. is there any risk still?

Doctor

A:   Dettol is an antiseptic and toxic and lethal if consumed large. Though most of is vomited, the patient might develop problems of aspiration, quiet common in dettol poisoning. More over it is corrosive to stomach wall, so the patient must be immediately shifted to an emergency to rule out any toxic and lethal effects and admitted for observation for few hours to rule out harmful effects.
