Quick Facts about KY Jelly:
KY Jelly is a personal lubricant and is also used in medical settings as a surgical lubricant. It is water based and considered non-toxic. Accidental ingestion of KY Jelly usually doesn’t cause symptoms. If a large amount is swallowed, there can be a laxative effect as it passes through the system resulting in a loose stool.
If you find your child ingesting KY jelly or similar lubricant, do not panic. Take it away from them, wipe out the mouth with a soft, wet cloth and give them some water to drink. If problems start or you have questions, call the Missouri Poison Center right away at 1-800-222-1222. The poison center is open all day, every day for poisoning emergencies and questions.
