  • If paint gets into the eyes, rinse with running water for 15-20 minutes.
  • If someone swallows paint, give a small amount of water or milk to drink.Then contact poison control.
  • Watch for nausea, vomiting or diarrhea.
  • If someone inhales paint fumes and feels sick, immediately get fresh air. Call Poison Control at 1-800-222-1222.
