Did you know that around half of the calls to NC Poison Control involve children under the age of six? Young children tend to explore the world around them by putting nearly everything they touch into their mouths. Some household products and even products designed specifically for infants and young children can pose a threat if used incorrectly. If you find that a child has tasted, touched, or swallowed something you’re not sure about, call the experts at NC Poison Control. Some medications may have delayed symptoms, so don’t wait for symptoms to appear. In many cases, we can give immediate peace of mind by treating your case over the phone. Remember, calls are free and confidential. If you have a question or concern about something your child may have gotten into, call us at 1-800-222-1222.
