Thank you for waiting.
I am very sorry for his symptoms.
I understand your concern.
Small amount diluted in bath water would not cause side effect.
If the concentration is more then it could cause dizzy feeling, breathlessness.
Still, I would advise to call local poison control center at 1-***-***-****.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

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.
