Good morning doctor,

1 Answer:

Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. When a person is exposed to strong acids or alkalis on their skin, because this content is a corrosive substance, the skin can become irritated, infected, peeled, painful, blistered and completely damaged.


While allergy itself is a condition of the body's excessive response to something, such as dust, seafood, pollen, certain drinks, and imitation materials. Among the symptoms that appear on the skin of people with allergies are:

Itchy
Redness
Spots appear
There are bumps with irregular shapes


So in your case, we doubt you have a battery acid allergy because you didn't mention that you had any complaints other than that the smell of lithium lingers on your hands. And if you do not have allergies, you should not take antihistamines, especially without a doctor's prescription. Neither is the acid, since you don't complain about pain either, it's likely that the acid in the battery isn't strong acid, and even if it's strong, there's not enough of it to injure you.


So if the complaint is limited to the smell that doesn't go away on your hands, try to clean your hands using dish soap, antiseptic soap, or lime juice. You can also use alcohol to get rid of the smell. If it still doesn't go away, or if you find that you have other complaints, check with your doctor for further treatment. That's all, hope it helps.
