I immediately took her to the washroom and washed out her mouth. I am A VERY CONCERNED GRANDMA AND CANNOT GO TO SLEEP WITHOUT AN ANSWER. Please email me soon.Will she be okay--14 months old

I think the best thing for you to do in this situation is to call poison control. Their number is XXXXX


Have the zinc oxide container with you when you call because they might ask you for the ingredient list. They have the resources that you will need in this type of situation.
