Children of age 1 – 4 years are especially prone to poisonings. In case of accidents, it is very important to know how to react, in order to minimize damage. Often, you will not need to do anything – but sometimes it may be important to give the child something to drink, to flood eyes or skin, or to react in other ways.
Some medicines and chemicals may be dangerous even in small quantities. Swift medical treatment may be important. Do not wait for symptoms of poisoning to occur before you ask for help and advice: Call The Poison Information: 22 59 13 00 – this line is open and answered by qualified personnel, around the clock.
In cases of unconsciousness call 113
