A chemical burn is a specific type of burn injury. In short, a chemical burn is any damage caused to the body’s tissue that ranges from slight irrigation to severing and damaging. When the skin is exposed to a chemical, it may become burned by the substance or its fumes.
Many chemical burns happen at school, work or at home every year. Although relatively small number of people are killed by chemical burns in the United Sates annually, chemical burns are still a threat to the health and safety of people across the nation, and a substantial number of individuals are badly injured by these types of burns every year.
Many chemical burns heal without medical attention. If you have suffered a chemical burn, go to your doctor and make sure that you do not need further medical attention. In extreme cases, patients may need to be admitted to the hospital. These visits can become expensive. If you’ve been burned, you’re probably wondering how you will pay for your medical bill and other expenses. Don’t give up.
