There must have been significant injury to have caused a mass after 3 decades. I doubt a human kick would be capable of such damage. . I would have them work it up and not assume it is from the kick.

The above response is not mine and appears to have been intended for a different question...

The product that you describe is a nasal spray with a decongestant .. This would be absorbed intranasally and some post nasal drainage might be often swallowed ..

The product warns not to swallow and even to notify poison control if swallowed. A significant amount swallowed might cause higher blood pressure or racing of the heart...

A small amount in the mouth I would not count as being of that danger however

If you sprayed one dose and hit your mouth that would be similar in exposure amount...

Not opening bottle and taking a sip...that would be dangerous ..

A small amount as a single spray dose should not be of danger however

I hope that this makes sense and is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns

I will be happy to get back with you
