Health Tip: Poison-Proof Your Bathroom
And help protect children

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Many drugs and household products kept in the bathroom can be dangerous to children.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests how to keep kids safer:

  • Store medications in containers with sealed caps inside a locked cabinet.
  • Safely dispose of all expired meds.
  • Keep a separate storage area for daily-use items, such as shampoo and toothpaste, away from where you store dangerous items.
  • Do not take medication in front of children, to avoid "copy-catting" you.
  • Never refer to medicine as candy.
  • Read any medication's label before you administer the drug.
  • If giving medication in the middle of the night, always turn on a light.
