Phenol is a chemical that is corrosive to both the respiratory tract, eyes and skin. Phenol is commonly used for various purposes such as plastic and other materials.
Phenols can be corrosive in contact with skin. Corrosive to the skin can be quite fatal, especially if exposed in large quantities or exposed continuously for a long time. exposure to phenols can cause dermatitis, or burns.
from the condition you experience, the burning and burning sensation and browning may be caused by a burn. Phenol-induced burns can vary. If exposed to chemicals such as phenol, the first aid that can be done is to avoid further exposure to phenol and wash the affected area with running water. There are no specific antidotes for phenols. If the burns you are experiencing are severe, then a surgical cleaning or removal of dead tissue may be required by a surgeon. However, if the burn is only mild, it usually does not require special therapy.
Exposing phenol to the skin if only once and it's not severe usually doesn't cause serious problems later in life.
therefore, it is recommended that you check with a surgeon in person first so that the doctor can check your condition further, and provide the right therapy for you.
