Poison Control tells you what to do if you swallow, splash, or get stung by something that might be harmful.

It's a prime time for unintentional poisonings. Poison Control is here to help.
Our routines have suddenly changed with the onset of coronavirus (COVID-19). Many schools, day cares, and offices are closed, and many of us are working remotely. Hand sanitizer, cleaning products, and disinfectants are within close reach of our children. Our use of medications may be different than it was last week.

All of these changes make it a prime time for unintentional poisonings to happen right at home. No matter what the situation, reach out to Poison Control FIRST for suspected poisonings. Get guidance and treatment recommendations online with webPOISONCONTROL or by calling 1-800-222-1222. We're open and ready to help.

Poison Control reduces poisoning-related ER visits, a critical part of preserving valuable healthcare resources for coronavirus (COVID-19) care.
