Three questions: 1) If I accidentally got shampoo, ammonia

Customer Question

Three questions:1) If I accidentally got shampoo, ammonia or soap inside my shoes, and then wore the shoes for 30+ hours, would the shampoo/soap be absorbed into my skin, and/or would it make chemicals leach out of the shoe sole?2) If shampoo got on my eyes for 30+ hours, would there be permanent damage?3) I accidentally hit my right eyeball but there's little to no pain. Can the eyeball naturally heal from blunt trauma?

1) Most likely the chemical is absorbed in the shoes. 2) It doesn't cause permanent damage. Your tears wash them out. 3) If you have no pain in the eye, the damage is unlikely.

What harm might result from skin absorbing a large quantity of soap , shampoo or shoe-sole chemicals? Brain damage?
Expert:  khagihara replied 10 months ago.

Soap, shampoo contains detergent. It makes the foot swollen with water. It doesn't cause significant local and systemic damages. I don't think shoe-sole chemicals cause any damages in your body.
