I used ultra chloraseptic spray on my 7 year old daughter?

I used ultra chloraseptic spray on my 7 year old daughter and didn’t realise she had to hold her breath. She inhaled (gently, normal or even lighter breathing while I tried to get the back of her throat) on two or three occasions of using the spray. It was a few weeks ago, I didn’t think anything of it at the time but on closer inspection of the instructions when using it on her big brother today, I see it is vital to hold your breath. I am worried now that I may have caused her problems and googling answers is not helping my nerves… she has shown no signs of any concern but I wonder if I need to look out for anything?

You should not worry at all,it is harmless but holding breathing is important to avoid taking the spray away from the sores site..

This may have caused methemoglobinemia ,so to be safe I recommend CBC, reticulocyte count, LDH, bilirubin, haptoglobin, liver function tests, electrolytes, renal function tests
Good Luck

Nothing to be worried about, just be careful as u now doing..

God bless your daughter

the patient should hold his breath so as to keep the drug ingredients concentrated at the throat site.
If breath is not held,then the drug will be diluted causing less efficacy.
No such adverse effects are reported .
So,do not worry.’

Thanks for the query..

As till now there has been no abnormal symptoms therefore you need not to worry as there does not seems to be any complication and also the spray will not cause severe toxicity with little inhalation..

So just relax as there is nothing serious..

Hope this helps..
