...and it was disgusting. I was brushing my teeth about 20 minutes ago and reached for the mouthwash. Usual me being a million miles away grabs nail varnish remover instead of mouthwash, and due to the shock I got i panicked and swallowed some of it.

Has anyone else ever done this?! It was vile and my throat is feels really inflamed and itchy, I feel sick now.

Word of warning: be careful in the bathroom!

Ugghh *is sick*

perhaps you should go to the doctors? like now? read the back of the bottel see what it says about swallowing it.

Well I thought about that after I'd had a lot of water to drink and I rang my mums friend who's a pharmacist as I thought she might know how dangerous nail varnish remover is internally to the human body and she said if I didnt drink much I should be ok. She said I'll probably be sick within an hour. I feel it.

The advice used to ba have a small drink of milk (bout an eggcup full) and lie doen. Dont make yoursef sick as that can make it worse. If you only had a mouthful you should be ok.

:eek:

nail polish remover as an inhalant is dangerous and harmful to the brain, as it destroys the myelin sheath - impairing nerve impluses and causing potential cell death. drinking it is worse! best go see a doctor

I rang NHS direct (my bloody rentals aren't here either so I'm dealing with it myself lol) - and they said that I should be ok and that I shouldn't let myself go to sleep until I've been sick and let it work out of my system. I will be sick, soon, apparently.

Thats through inhalation. It causes skin irritation so he may have irritated and may have a slight chemical burn at worst in his oesaphagus..

Oh poor you, that sounds terrible, it makes me feel sick just thinking about it! I hope you get better soon, at least it sounds like you're working it out of your system, hopefully you'll feel better quite soon.

you won't get tuberculosis through drinking perfume.....

drinking acetone (main ingredient of nail varnish remover) isn't a good idea but as long as its a small amount you'll probably be fine.
