First Aid for Chemical Burns

Chemical burns are not just a risk in laboratories or industrial workspaces. They can be caused by contact with common household cleaners, swimming pool chlorine, and construction materials. A quick and knowledgeable response to a chemical burn can save a person from painful or even fatal injuries.

Injuries like chemical burns are usually preventable. Unfortunately, people are not always willing to take the right steps to keep others safe. If you or someone you love has suffered a chemical burn due to another party’s negligence, call the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800 to discuss South Carolina law with an experienced Charleston chemical burn injury attorney.

RESPONDING TO CHEMICAL BURNS

To help someone who is suffering from a chemical burn, it is important to:

  • Clean the affected area. If the chemical in question is a powder, wipe it off the skin thoroughly before applying any kind of liquid. Rinse the injured area with clean water very thoroughly; the burn victim may want to get in a shower.
  • Remove any clothing that the chemical has touched. Be very careful while handling this clothing until it has been cleaned, even if it is some time after the accident.
  • Cover the injured area with a fresh bandage and monitor it for signs of infection or continued chemical irritation.

You should call 911 if:

  • The burn is on or near the eyes, a joint, or a sensitive part of the body
  • The burn victim faints, has breathing difficulties, or shows any other worrying symptom
  • You have any doubts about the injury or whether or not you should call 911

Even if emergency treatment is not needed, you may want to call Poison Control or a doctor. It is always a good idea to have a chemical burn checked by a medical professional.
