Contact The Poison Information or a GP before administering activated charcoal to a child
Vomiting should in general not be induced at home, and never in cases of convulsions or when the child has swallowed petroleum products or products that cause chemical burns
If a child has swallowed white spirit, ignition fuel or other petroleum based products, give the child 1-2 tablespoons of cream, melted ice cream or vegetable oil in order to prevent serious damage to the lungs
When a child has swallowed products that cause chemical burns, immediately rinse their mouth and give 1 to 2 glasses to drink
Activated charcoal may be bought at any pharmacy, without a prescription. Parents of small children, kindergartens and schools are recommended to keep activated charcoal at hand, in case of poisoning.
