I am watching my 26 yr old granddaughter I was in the bathroom and she walked in with the cap to my Purcell hand sanitizer that was hanging on my purse practically empty but I am worried she could have put some in her mouth it's been at least an hr and she seems fine.

mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

mysticdoc :

Even if she puts little amount of hand sanitizer in her mouth, that is not poisonous.

mysticdoc :

This should not cause any problem.

mysticdoc :

Since your grand daughter is doing fine even after an hour, there is no need for concern.

Customer: She is 26 months thank you grandma is just concerned
mysticdoc :

I understand your concern.

mysticdoc :

This is still in safe limits.

Customer: On the bottle it said to get medical help or call poison control
mysticdoc :

You can call poison control --there is no harm.

mysticdoc :

However, given the absence of symptoms, just close observation for next 4-5 hours should be fine.

Customer: I trust yr answer and thank you so much. It really worried me they put everything in there mouths
mysticdoc :

That is their habit at this age--

mysticdoc :

Do not worry

Customer: Okay thank you so much
mysticdoc :

very welcome
