I used hydrogen peroxide as an antiseptic oral mouthwash rinse, and unfortunately got a bad reaction by getting my lower lip burned....along with the associated blister. It looks and feels like I got a shot of novacaine. Now I'm wondering how should I treat it. For the time being, I'm using a chap stick lip balm, and may even get neosporin lip treatment. I'm thinking also of rinsing with a baking soda solution. Could use some suggestions for this. thanks.
The official line for treating a H2O2 burn is that is is not expected to require first aid measures. You'll need to immediately wash the exposed area with soap and water and then get medical advice if irritation develops. I think that you're in the last bracket and need to seek medical advice. No more home treatments!
Thanks for the informative link. An online nurse from another website recommended rinsing with salt water and that the adverse effects would last a few days. The numbness and swelling seems to be receding although there is some discoloration left. Its a lesson learned in using something full strength.
I burned myself with hydrogen peroxide and read the advice by the nurse. I found it helpful to put my finger which was burned in a glass of warm salt water about 10 oz with a tablespoon of salt - I left it there for 10 minutes. The swelling went down, the burning sensation stopped and the white skin from the burn almost completely disappeared. Thanks for the tip, nurse.
