How do I remove chemical burns from my head?


I got a perm yesterday and it burned and left lots of chemical burns how is possible to remove them.
----------

You can take a knife and cut them out if you think that will help.... but I wait for them to heal like everyone else.  (+ info)

What can I use to help heal chemical burns and get rid of itching?


I have, what I think is, chemical burns on my arms. I won't be able to see the doctor for a couple of weeks. What is the best over the counter remedy to help speed the healing process and get rid of the itching?
----------

If you have and no doubt would have and what they have recommended isn't good enough, then;
After my skin grafts took, I wore pressure bandages for roughly a year to stop the growing scar tissue. And just to keep it compressed and not blown out.
Even the new vitamin 'E' cream (of course if it is indeed) that's perfect
Best of luck my friend.  (+ info)

How long does it usually take for chemical burns to heal?


i had a chemical burn for about 5 days now and i have been putting vaseline petroleum jelly. but usually how long do these burns recover? will the scars go away and will new skin replace the burn? or will the mark stay there forever?
----------

About a week. stop with the vaseline, switch to an aloe lotion with none or hardly any alcohol. You can use light moisterizer too if you want. There might be light bloches left for a while but they will go away to. Keep it out of the sun by covering up. Don't wash with bar soap you can use body wash or noxema or cetylphil.
if it hurts use the spray products used for sunburn, but try ibuprofin first  (+ info)

can you get chemical burns in your mouth from inhaling too much bleach?


I was cleaning my new house and I used a lot of bleach. My fingers got some chemical burns and now my mouth has sores on my tongue and my tongue and the roof of my mouth feels like I burned it on hot coffee or something. My daughter also has tonsilitis and I was wondering if it could be symptoms of that.
----------

very possibly, suggest that the bleach solution you are using is much too strong. A very effective solution is one gallon of water and one cup of bleach. That may seem very dilute to you, but trust me, it is just as effective in killing germs as straight bleach, but with a great deal less harm to you or your environment or your family.  (+ info)

What do I use for chemical straightener burns on my scalp?


I just got chemical relaxer put in my hair. And I have nasty oozing sores around my hairline. I've put soe aloe vera on them, but they hurtttt. I can't wash my hair for 2 days or so my stylist said.
Halpp??
----------

In the future, do not use this method for straightening your hair.

The best thing to do, is to let it heal, and to not touch it until then. Aloe helps. Neosporin would help too.  (+ info)

What is the chemical I can taste in some pasta sauces and soups that burns my throat?


it's mostly bought processed foods, also orange squash. It's not chilli btw, what causes this?
hi grit, no I don't think so, I was doing some bathroom tiling and the powder they put in those gloves made my hands itch the other day now you mention it, I might be lol. I am allergic to pollen and skin creams though.
----------

I wish I had an answer for you. I experience discomfort with red/tomato-based sauces, but that's because I have acid reflux AND some food allergies.

Just out of curiosity, do you have a latex allergy?

EDIT: Yeah, get tested for a latex allergy. It's been discovered that people with seasonal and food allergies often end up having a latex allergy as well. I'm allergic to tree pollen. I'm also allergic to most fruits and some vegetables. And I have a mild latex allergy. Tomatoes (particularly very fresh ones) make my mouth itch. But tomato soup doesn't bother me. It kind of all depends.

My mom reacts to latex. She's never been tested, and tomatoes make her react pretty intensely.  (+ info)
