hi im new to here just joined today i have been reading through quite a few messages
the reason im here is because 6 weeks ago my drains were blocked where i live the council said they would charge if they came out anyway cutting a long story short i brought some drain cleaner at the time i thought i would be ok stupid i know so i brought some drain cleaner not knowing there it was caustic soda and not knowing how much damage it can cause anyway i got caustic soda on my right hand (hopefully the pics will turn out)
it started with little blisters that burst then the skin went black and scabbed over as u can see in the photos i went straight to my GP who said i was to see the nurse as its a chemical burn and its a third degree burn
the nurse as been brilliant she as been putting flaminal onto it and dressing it and using saline on it aswell i last saw her yesterday as she took some of the scab off as a bit came up because of the flaminal im due to see her again next tuesday
sorry i havent put a photo on that is up to date however i have taken pictures of the progress it is going to leave a awful scar
anyway if anyone as any advice please send it my way please
