DD gave a bottle of karvol to ds2 (a year old) and he got the lid off (not childproof...damned it....they should be) and tipped it all over himself and his bed. He has rubbed it on his face as well and now its all red......not swollen though. I have smelt in his mouth and it doesnt smell of it in there so i dont think he put any in there. What should I do. He seems happy enough but looks like a little beetroot!!
