Toddler emergency!!!! help

My 3 year old accidently sprayed perfume in his eyes, alot... My dad was showing me his new bottle and placed it on the counter for a sec and my son reached for it and sprayed himself. I have given him a bath and washed it out as best as I can. But they still seem extremely red and his nose is runny to. Can I do anything else???

  • Let the eyes and nose water. His body will clean the residue out. If he gets a headache,give Tylenol or motrin
    i always get a headache from eye irritation
    Take him in if he has problems breathing or the swelling isn't gone by morning

  • I have heard of rinsing eyes with milk. I have never done this but it is supposed to relieve itchy eyes and flush chemicals. You may want to go ahead and call poison control. Even if he didn't ingest it they will probably be able to help you.

  • I would call. I would imagine that they would suggest flushing the eyes with water for 15 minutes. I wouldn't take him to the ER unless they suggest doing so.
