Question: sulphuric acid burn

 billyjaxin - Wed Sep 16, 2009 10:12 am

Two days ago my face was splashed with concentrated sulpuric acid. It was flushed with water within 10 - 20 seconds. It seems to be healing well but has left some brown splotches. The brown spotches are numb.

Will the discoloration fade over time?

User avatar Hello,Most of the post inflammatory pigmentation caused by superficial burns should clear by 6 months.You may apply some aloe vera creme twice daily.If persists hydroquinone creme or azelaic acid creme may be prescribed by the physician.
