Hi there, I have an interesting, yet imbarrasing question... I got sick today about 30 minutes after I had my dinner and I accidentaly inhaled some of the vomit. Is it possible to get some kind of pneumonia from this even if it was only about a little more than a teaspoon?


Though it is small in amount , but the possibility of developing pneumonia can not be entirely ruled out. If you develop any symptom it will be prudent to get a consultation with doctor for examination and early intervention.

Hope this information will help you.
Wish your healthy life.
