Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. If you get a request for a phone call, it is from the website and not myself. If he just ingested this, I want you to give a tablespoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide orally to induce vomiting. This can be repeated in 10 minutes if there is no vomiting. If you don't have hydrogen peroxide, let me know. If you do have it, do this now, and I will be right back with you.
