A popular online Award-winning doctor known as Aproko Doctor has warned the general public not to force a victim of poison to vomit.

Issuing this warning via his twitter account the doctor wrote

“ If someone around you swallows a poison,

DON’T MAKE THEM VOMIT

Doing this can;

damage the tissues in your throat and mouth

Cause dehydration

Cause further harm caused by a mix of poison and stomach acid

Cause aspiration, or getting the poison into the lungs
Keep a sample of what the person has taken even if the bottle is empty

If the poison burns or is corrosive, and the person is AWAKE and conscious, give a SMALL amount of milk

Rush the person to the nearest hospital

Lie them on their side so they don’t vomit into their lungs”
