Question: My son drank bleach. What do I do? Alfred

Answer: Dear Alfred,

If the bleach ingested was a diluted version, then it usually only causes mild stomach irritation. It is recommended to drink milk or water in order to dilute the bleach.

If the amount ingested was big and poisoning is suspected it is important to seek emergency care.

If the bleach in soon diluted (with milk, water) damage is usually greatly minimized. Without proper and promt treatment damage to the mouth, throat, lungs, esophagus and stomach can occur.
