My 2yo has managed to find the deep heat cream and has ate some of it. Im not sure how much but she only had a little bit on her finger ive washed her mouth but it stinks, she seems fine but im still worried, im about to phone 111 but they are useless really

Ooo that's actually quite a tough one isn't it? I probably would ring for advice. You'll know soon enough if she's uncomfortable.

Do you know roughly how much she has eaten? That stuff stinks so she may have just smeared a tiny bit in her mouth which I don't think would do her any harm. If there is a lot missing from the tube then I'd definitely get her checked out

111 will contact the National Poisons Information Service and give advice based on what they say.

I'd ring them now.

If she actually got in her mouth, I'd take her to be checked. The mucous membranes are very delicate and that stuff burns

We took her to a&e and we were in for 6 hours for regular observations and there happy with her, shes fine she has no burns in her mouth and has been eating and drinking normally but her blood sugar was slightly too low even though she had ate 2 hours prior to the test so ill be making a gp appointment to see if i can get it checked out

Hi OP - what made them test her blood sugars?

Can I ask what they were?

Just interested as my son was in A&E with low blood sugar this week -

Amy214 Thu 28-Jan-16 21:43:30

Im not sure why they tested her bloods they never said, i shouldve asked, they were 4.2 she said it was between 4 and 7 but they were quite low considering she had quite a big lunch
