Signs of Poisoning: What to Look For

What are the signs of poisoning I should look out for?

Poisoning can cause serious health issues, so it’s important to recognize the signs. Here are some key things to watch for:

Signs Of Poisoning_ What To Look For
  • Gastrointestinal signs – Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain can indicate poisoning. If your stomach feels unwell after eating or drinking something, be alert.
  • Neurological symptoms – Dizziness, confusion, blurred vision, tremors, and seizures can signal toxin exposure. Pay attention if coordination, senses, or brain function seem impaired.
  • Skin irritation – Rashes, burns, redness, and itching may arise from contact with irritant chemicals. Monitor the skin for reactions.
  • Difficulty breathing – Shortness of breath, wheezing, rapid breathing, or bluish lips/skin suggest respiratory distress, which some poisons can trigger.
  • Unusual odor or taste – If food or drink smells or tastes strange, that may mean contamination. Don’t consume anything that seems off.

Stay vigilant about these red flags after potential toxin exposure. Call emergency services if major or life-threatening symptoms appear. Acting quickly can make a big difference in health outcomes.
