2 weeks ago a gasoline engine back fired embedding exhaust…

Hello, 2 weeks ago...

Hello, 2 weeks ago a gasoline engine back fired embedding exhaust particles in my skin, on my forearm, they have been festering out but there is a lot of minute particles still there. what do i need to do to get them out?? thank you Dan(###) ###-####

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?

Just where the exhaust hit me 6 inches long, where the particals went in there was a little bleeding at first and 5 inches wide and a round bump the size of 1 1/2 inches , is the size of the exhaust pipe. seems to still weep. I have been using peroxide and antibiotic cream, I quit using the peroxide and only using cream.now, no burn but itches a lot. my arm was 6 inches away from the back fire

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Iam 70 years old, hip replacement 5 years ago , I work at being healthy. I do take a lot of vitamins and minerals the only prescription is eye drops. Nebraska does have a chelation clinic, I go once a month trying to stay healthy, a urine test one year ago showed high levels of tin.

Back fire did not seem like or feel like a.burn. the question is the particales toxic and will they cause a tumar or cancer???
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I have accepted this twice now once on here and once on my phone, I hope this is not charge
No it is a burn. I see no particles my friend. You need to go to ER and get burn treatment and they can do an x-ray for particles

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
