If your child ate a mouthful or less of non-medicated hand, face or body lotion give them a few sips of water and watch for loose stools or an upset stomach.
My child ate lotion. Is lotion toxic?
Lotion is minimally toxic in small amounts and can cause a mild laxative effect at worst.
Lotion may cause irritation if exposed to eyes.
If your child got lotion in their eyes, rinse by pouring clean, lukewarm water across the affected eye(s) for 15 minutes.
For more instructions, please see our page on eye exposure information.
