Hi really need advice I think my daughter may have swallowed a tobacco filter it wouldn't have been used as it she pulled the wrapper from under the sofa. She hasn't had any symptoms of poisening and it was an hour and a half ago so not sure if she did but need some advice

My son once ate two cigarettes. He was two and it was my uncle's last two in the pack before he was giving up. He wasnt best pleased. We all laughed. Proper tears, unable to breathe laughing. grin <ds was fine>

surlycue-i can't believe you think [thought] that was funny
nicotine is extremely poisonous to young children and cause seizures and all sorts

kellyzach-i would seek medical advice if i were you

Have you got the packet to see what is in them?

I know, i was very stupid in my youth. I can laugh now because he was fine. Obviously a different story if he hadnt been.

To clarify, we were laughing at my uncle's misfortune.

Doesn't say anything on the pack but she hadn't been sick and is still responding in her sleep when I try wake her and breathing normally and skin looks normal

Do you mean an unused filter tip for a hand rolled cigarette? (Not the top off a tailor made fag?)

TBH I'm not sure I'd bat an eyelid at it.
Obviously not recommended for dinner wink, but no worse than a munch on a leaflet or whatevs.

I'd be very surprised if there was much toxic in an unused one.

Yeah an unused filter tip I'm calmer now as been a couple of hours and she seems absolutely fine thanks for your help
