Run it under cool water for 15 minutes that will help with the stinging and also get all the chemical off of your skin. After put some burn cream on it.

dont stick the burnt area on another part of your body, cool the skin, then apply a Lidocaine burn gel if you have some. leave the gel on, don not rub it in.

In my EMT- Basic class we were taught the best solution for pollution is dilution. So you need to constantly flow that part of your body under water. Do not soak it because that would just immerse your body part in the toxin. Use running water and just for safety use room temperature or cooler water to slow down the reaction. But you should still consider going to see your doctor to make sure there is not extensive damage.

HOPE YOU ALREADY GOT RELIEF FOR YOUR CHEMICAL BURN! BUT EVEN IF YOU DID, KEEP THIS IN MIND, OK?

MOST (but not all) OVEN CLEANERS ARE MADE UP OF ALKALINE (Eg. CAUSTIC) CHEMICALS.

THESE CAN BE QUICKLY AND SAFELY NEUTRALIZED BY APPLYING SODA WATER, OR VINEGAR, OR LEMON JUICE.

IF THESE MAKE IT WORSE, THEN THE CLEANER WAS NOT CAUSTIC. IF THE CLEANER WAS "FATTY" WASHING WITH SOME KIND OF ALCOHOL WILL REMOVE A LOT OF THE CHEMICAL..

EITHER WAY, THEN RINSE WITH LOTS OF WATER, PREFERABLY SUBMERSE THE "BURN" IN WATER AND "RUB OUT" THE INFLAMMATION.

Hopefully, you no longer need this advice, but it is a good idea to tape up in your cabinet!

COOL not cold water, then get all of the substance, then put disinfectant and cream, and aloe vera feels good too


Miss S
the best thing you can do for any burn is quickly bring it back to your body temperature (don't use cold or hot water!!)
whatever you burned, be it a finger or who knows.. stick it to your skin somewhere and hold it there for a few minutes until you think it's close to your body temperature again
(this also prevents it from getting worse, or blistering, from my experience)..

Flush with copious (alot) water for about 15-30 minutes. Call the customer service Number on the can and see what they recommend.

Depending on the chemical makeup of the cleaner, they will indicate how you can nutralize the chemical. Do not just try anything until you make the phone call.

If you cannot get an answer from the customer service people, call poison info hotline in your area.

The best way to counteract a burn is with water. Stick your hand in a bowl of tepid water and leave it there for an hour at least. Then you need something to soothe it, like Calamine lotion or something similar if you have it.
