Hi there,
Nail polish remover doe have harmful chemicals.
It is better to call the poison control board for guidance.
The effects of these chemicals may remain for 12 hours or longer.
So close observation is recommended.
This is the website to look for your provincial phone number:

You should consider going to the local hospital.
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****

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.
