Lime, when cooked, is calcium hydroxide, which is calcium oxide, non-toxic, but it reacts chemically. Although lime has a corrosive effect, it is often used to disinfect the environment. Strictly speaking, it does not belong to drugs. So if you really have accidentally eaten calcium hydroxide, how to solve it, this problem will let Shandong calcium hydroxide producer "Hongyuan Calcium" come to tell everyone what to do:
First, if you eat this kind of desiccant, calcium oxide will burn your mouth or esophagus because it releases heat during the process of turning into calcium hydroxide. At the same time, calcium hydroxide is alkaline, corrosive to the oropharynx, esophagus, such as splashing into the eye will cause damage to the conjunctiva and cornea.
Second, for those who eat this kind of desiccant, do not induce vomiting. Oral milk or water should be taken immediately. Adults usually take 120-240 ml. Children usually take 10 ml per kilogram of body weight, but the total amount is less than 200 ml. Vomiting can be induced by excessive drinking water.
Third, at the same time, be careful not to neutralize with any acid substances, because the heat released by the neutralization reaction can aggravate the damage. If there is a calcium hydroxide desiccant splashing into the eyes, rinse with the clear water and normal saline from the nose to the ear as soon as possible, rinse for at least 15 minutes, and then send to the hospital. If the skin is contaminated, it should be rinsed with plenty of water. In severe cases, it can be treated as chemical burns.
If you have problems, don't panic. According to the principle of calcium hydroxide, you should prescribe the right medicine.
