Customer Question
I accidentally poured too much...
I accidentally poured too much water into my mouth so spit it out by accident and it got all over my phone cord that was plugged into the wall. Is it possible I could have gotten electrocuted when the water was pouring out of my mouth and onto the cord?

I’m nervous because there was so much water in my mouth that part of the stream of water was in my mouth and the other part ran over the cord at the same time

Hello?
Doctor: Onlinedoc, Doctor replied 2 months ago

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, chances of electrocuted from spilling water on intact phone wire are very slim if the wire is not broken.

You should do oral antiseptic rinse if you feel your tongue is sore.

And maintain a good hydration.

Take vitamin C lozenges and cepacol lozenges.

Yeah I don’t think the cord is broken but very nervous as to shock or electtocutionnso nervous that I can’t sleep now!
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I feel very nauseous too
Doctor: Onlinedoc, Doctor replied 2 months ago

Thank you for replying back.

I give you an assurance that if the cord was not broken then you shouldn't worry.

You can try Over the counter Liquid Emetrol for nausea.

Maintain a good hydration with Gatorade.

Take 1mg of Melatonin for anxiety and sleep. ( available over the counter.)

I hope this answers your question. If you would like to discuss this further or have any additional questions, please reply to my answer and I will get right back to you.

Looking closely with a flashlight there are some “worn” markings on the cord. I can’t see physical wires under the plastic casing on the cord but I see some worn markings. Am I still ok then? Very nervous. How would I know if I had been shocked?
Doctor: Onlinedoc, Doctor replied 2 months ago

Do you have any sore on the tongue?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No. Major open sores that I can see but I do have tender spots and some redness and a bunch of raised little bumps
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
It’s more in the sides of my tonifgr than in the top of my tongue
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I was also wearing g shoes I think when this happened
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
If that matters at all...I’m pretty sure I had some shoes on but may not have

I have seen your photos.

And there is no sign of any burn from electrocution after spilling water on the phone wire.

Just try such remedies.

And you will be OK.

Don't worry.

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.
