Chemical accident

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Was fly spraying my horses earlier and I have an industrial type sprayer that I use. Suddenly the sprayer slipped out of hands, crashed on the floor and the hose came off. I got it full in the face- a big spray of Pemectrin II. Now my face feels like someone put ice on it and then heat. I see no redness, no chemical burns to speak of. I am still on hold with the poison control center-

Oh dear GAWD!!! Hissy, get Mike to be on hold while you IMMEDIATLY put your face under the running shower spray!!! Did it get into your eyes, nose or mouth? Drench, and I do mean DRENCH yourself with clear running water right now!!!!

My thoughts as well, MA. Please put your face under running water immediately! If it got in your eyes, flush them continuously! This is so scary! Please do keep us updated as you are able!

Ok just got out of the shower again for the third time- I immediately did go in and took a cold to hot shower and tried to scrub the taste out of my mouth, and out of my nose because that is what took the brunt of the stream. It would have gotten in my eyes except my glasses saved me there.

The Poison Center told me I was lucky, this is a mild poison for mammals, but deadly to flies. It causes skin irritation and peculiar feelings when it gets on the skin- (no guff) I feel like one moment someone has burned me, and the next I have been immersed in a giant pool of ice water. I do feel nauseated and that is because I got it in my mouth. Mike went to the store to get me Vitamin E gelcaps and I have broke open these caplets and put the oil all over my face- I look like an oompa loompa right now!

The center will call me in the morning to see how I am doing. I have heaved a few times, and feel better that way- what a klutz I am-

The label of the product you used should have directions on it. (by law). Do you have a MSDS on it?
I would also check the internet by that product's name and see what that says.
Being an amatuer horticulturist and a chemisty minor in college I know the best is to follow the directions on the container. Most of the time it is to use water. But in your mouth-eek!!
Hope you are feeling ok today.
