Used oven pride yesterday and totally my own fault didn’t wear long sleeves. Totally stupid.
A bit must have brushed on as i put the racks in the bag but I didn’t realise. So I put the racks to one side and carried on cleaning the inside of oven with non harsh chemicals. Took gloves off made myself a cuppa tea. So maybe about an hour later I noticed my arm was a bit red and stingy.
I realised what I must have done and washed cleaner off.
Today it’s a bit redder with little red dots on it. I’ve washed it and put savlon on it.
I’ll attach a pic from yesterday and today.
Question is I googled it and scared myself, so just want a bit of reassurance that it will go away on it’s own and not gonna turn into one of these horrible black things on google!
I would maybe pop into the GP surgery, you might need the nurse to put a dressing on that. Or go to a Small Injuries Clinic if you have one locally.
I splashed a bit onto my foot last year, it went through my sock.
I scratched it before i knew what it was, so it formed a scab.
Although it was tiny the mark was there for several months (did it before Easter, could still see it in flip flops the whole summer) but it has now gone. Once the scab healed it wasn't sore there was just a reddish mark.
I've done that before, got it on my skin between the gloves and my sleeve. Washed it with water, it bubbled like yours did, but was fine after a few days.
Glad to hear. Always see the worst cases on google!
I burnt my hands with this last year I stupidly didnt use gloves do not ask why I have no idea I'm not usually that stupid . I also scared myself on Google I think I actually posted on here about it at the time. I didn't have blisters like yours but my hands were red raw and stung for about a week. I can still remember the pain I used to get when warm water touched them I had to wash my dishes in cold water until it got better. Luckily there was no lasting damage.
I burnt my wrist with it a few years ago, not especially bad just a 50p size blister.
But now if I get a tiny drop in me it causes a rash instantly.
I can't use mr muscle it chokes me.
Stopped cleaning the oven now and I'm happily injury free.
