Hello,

Myself Dr Josh- and I’m happy to help with your question today.

Well, Tea tree oil or melaleuca oil is taken from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia. It is said to have antibacterial properties when applied topically.

It could cause drowsiness, confusion, hallucinations, coma, unsteadiness, weakness, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach upset, blood cell abnormalities, and severe rashes when swallowed.

At this time, You need to calm down and see for any signs like rash/ swelling over the body/ vomiting/ dizziness or pain at abdomen.

In case, you have severe dizziness/ or any rash on body, then please get it checked in ER ASAP.

You should Have adequate fluid, you can take a glass of cold milk and balanced diet.

Hope this helped
