This may not cause any significant problem except mild nausea and slight abdominal pain. Please drink two glasses of water which will dilute the effect. If you are unable to drink two glasses in one go, do it in around 20-30 minutes. This will dilute the hydrogen peroxide.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
