Chemical burns occur when the eyes, nose, mouth, or skin are damaged by contact with a chemical substance. This can be done by direct contact with the chemical or by contact with the vapors.
The symptoms of a chemical burn can vary according to the depth of the burn:
- In a first-degree chemical burn, the skin is reddened and wet. The burned area hurts, whitens (fades) on light touch, but does not develop bubbles.
- Second degree chemical burns are pink or red, swollen and extremely painful. Within 24 hours (often shortly after burning), bubbles appear, from which a clear liquid can escape. Again, the redness is whitish when touched.
- Third-degree chemical burns are generally not painful, as the nerves have been destroyed. The skin becomes leathery and can turn white, black or light red. The redness is no longer bright when touched, the hair can be pulled out easily and painlessly with the root.
Severe burns, second- or third-degree deep burns, burns in young children or the very elderly, and burns of the hands, feet, face, and genitals are best treated at specialist clinics. These hospitals specialize in equipment and staffing for the treatment of burn victims.
