Many chemical substances at home and at work can do serious harm. Most chemical burns from household products such as bleach or pool chlorinator cause relatively minor injuries that can be treated on an outpatient basis. Chemical burns at work, however, may be much more serious because of the strength and amount of the chemical involved. Individuals working with chemicals in labs or processing plants, on construction sites, or during cleanup or maintenance can suffer severe burns that may result in disfigurement, long-term disability or even death.
Symptoms of Chemical Burns and Exposure
Chemicals that touch the skin or are inhaled can produce both injuries to the skin and internal injuries. The internal injuries from chemical exposure, however, are not always immediately apparent, and in fact may not become known for some time. Signs of chemical burns may include:
- Uncontrollable pain
- Rash, blisters or burns on the skin
- Abdominal pain
- Shallow or difficult breathing
- Bright red or bluish skin or lips
- Signs of shock
- Allergic reaction
- Second-degree burns covering more than 3 inches
- Chemical burns on eyes, hands, feet, face, groin, buttocks or major joint
