first and foremost,

look for signs if y’all suspect poisoning:

  1. burns or redness around the mouth and the lips which can result from drinking certain poisons,
  2. breath that smells like chemicals, perhaps gasoline or paint thinner, floor, rugs or other objects in the surrounding area.
  3. vomiting, dificulty breathing, sleepliness, confusion or oher signs

other conditions mimic the signs and symptoms of poisoning includes, seizures, alcohol intoxication, stroke and insulin reaction.

if u can find no indication of poisoning, dn’t treat the person

check for containers,

  1. read the label- -following instructions on the product specifiying what to do
  2. call for information on products or the emergency help
  3. Dn’t induce vomiting, instead seek emergency medical assistance
  4. Remove clothing, if contaminated. that is if the person has vomited on the cloth, skin,
  5. flush with lukewarm water
  6. Take the container from which the person drank from
