Customer Question
My 10mth old granddaughter...

My 10mth old granddaughter has a few bits of potting in her mouth. I don't know if she swallowed any or how much. What is the best thing to do?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you noticed any recent swelling? Do you have any tooth pain?

No to both

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

This is for the baby

Hello. My name is***** and I just read through your question.
As long as she is otherwise we'll, you do not need to do anything. At most, she may experience some mild abdominal pain. Still nothing to do. She will be fine, there is no need to 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.

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.
