Hello !

Do you know what the solvent was ? I think if it came onto your skin and you flushed with water tgatcthis would suffice ...ok for a solvent to use soap and water _ soaps may be more mixable with chemical solvents and help remove these ( acetone / ethyl acetate / other solvents ...)

It would be important that you did not get these in your eyes or I'm your mouth

Very important that you did not acidentally inhale such a solvent

..if we are looking at brief skin contact only then first aid measures to thoroughly clean skin with soap and water should be fine ...

Also how are you feeling ?

You feel ok ? Any burning of eyes ? Coughing or wheezing or burning of chest ? You did not accudentakku swallow any solvent , right ??

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns

I will be happy to get back with you

If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback

Thank you and Best Regards,

Anthony Bray MD

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
