Customer Question
My three year old grandson...
My three year old grandson put a straw in an old bucket of water with slime in it. I am not sure if he drank any or if I caught him before he drank it. I washed his mouth out, but I am worried about any further complications. He seems fine.

Hello. My Name is***** and I just read through your question.

This is a very common occurrence in this age group. Typically, if the child experiences anything at all, it's just a bit of abdominal discomfort within the first few hours of the ingestion. If he becomes a bit irritable, you will know that this is the reason why. Outside of that, there is nothing to worry about.

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
