Poison Control....

My son is 13 months old and ate a chunk of BAN deodorant that was the size of the tip of a finger and now he is fussing like his tummy hurts and chugging milk like crazy. I anyone on here nice enough to cal poison control for me due to the fact that I have no phone.

Ingredients: cyclopentasiloxane, stearyl alcohol, PPG-17, hydrogenated castor oil, C12-15 alkyl bezoate, sodium silver aluminum silicate, phellodendron amurense bark extract, oleic acid, santalum album extract, behenyl alcohol, hordeum distichon extract, fragrance , and Aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex gly.

The number to the poison control center is 1 800 222 1222

If anyone can do this for me it would be well appreciated. He ate it like 15 to 20 mins ago.

  • Just got off the phone with poison control. She said that the deoderant won't do anything to him. The tummy ache is probably from a lot of milk. Keep fluids in him but don't overload him and he will be fine. Don't worry

  • Why don't you take him to the ER?

  • I am in Ohio and I have no way to the ER right now and no phone.

  • she will probably also need the name brand of the deodorant, they can sometimes bring up the major brands with just the name and know what needs to be done. try not to give him anything else to drink until you know what poison control says to do. it may make it worse if there is a problem

  • The ban website says the ingrediates are non-toxic but to follow up with the doc and know that it can cause indigestion.
