why may I ask is it no longer recommended that children vomit up things like pudy or styrofoam? Wouldn't it be better to get the toxic substances out of ther body reather than aborbing them?

putting back to sleep
Hello it is my pleasure to help youcan you clarify the question please?
my son brought home a ball of white faommy stuff. It is like a dry pudy of some sort but I don't know if it is actually a childrens thing like playdough is. It seem toxic to me but has no smell. I don't know what it is, my son dosnt either. He is 10. My almost 2 yr old got a hold of it some time before be. She awke with a week wimper like something was bothering her. She normally dosnt awake till early morn. I put her back to sleep and so far so good. But I found this stuff in her hand and all over her bed in crubles. I'm worried she ate it. She was with out her binky- she had it in hand and the white stuff in other hand. I'm wondering if she should vomit it????
since we are not sure if she ate it or not the best thing to do now is check is there is any residuals in her mouth that is visible to you if there in none then you just need to monitor her .just keep an eye on her if any symptoms appear unusual like nausea,diarrhea,rash ,difficulty breathing or fatigue you should proceed to ER ASAP
I hope I answered your question
if you have any other questions let me know
If I was able to help you your EXCELLENT feedback is very important to me so I would get compensated for my time ans answer
yes my initial question- why isnt it recommeded any more to vomit up things like that- it's too late now but I'm courious....
I did check to see if there was anything in her mouth and no sign. Shes been awaking every few min. So I'm assuming she did eat some. Just to clarify I should take her in if shes fatiqued? What can be does- say in the morn she's acting sick and I take her in? Any ideas what the stuff could be?
the main reason we do not encourage inducing vomiting is because some poisons are corrosive in nature so if vomiting happen they may burn the esophagus and upper GI track and it would be more harmful so we usually pump them out in a tube in the hospitalI have no idea what this stuff could be but as long as she is fine you can continue monitoring her as I mentioned before and it is ok in the morning to take her only if she develops symptoms or fatigue which is out of her normal
