First Aid Measures Eye Contact Skin Contact Page: 2/6 NO known EFFECT on eye contact, rinse with water for a few minutes. After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water. Gently and thoroughly wash the contaminated skin with running water and non-abrasive soap. Be particularly careful to clean folds, crevices, creases and groin. Since the product can readily penetrate the protective epidermal layer and cause rashes or eczema, a good hand cream should be used after washing affected areas. Seek medical attention. Wash contaminated clothing before reusing. Allow the victim to rest in a well ventilated area. Seek immediate medical attention. DO NOT induce vomiting. Examine the lips and mouth to ascertain whether the tissues are damaged, a possible indication that the toxic material was ingested; the absence of such signs, however, is not conclusive. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Seek immediate medical attention. Not available.
