If Harpic Toilet Cleaner Go In Eye

I beleive I have damaged my lungs by breathing in some cleaning chemicals. What can I do about this horrible coughing fit? I was clleaning my toilet and mixed some bleach with toilet bowl cleaner in the bowl and went to wipe it out and inhaled the fume
I really wish I had seen your question earlier, so that I could have responded to it immediately. It sounds like you did damage your lungs. I do not know if the damage is temporary. Mixing bleach with some toilet bowl cleaners can produce chlorine gas. To get an idea of how dangerous chlorine is, it has been used as a chemical warfare agent. Bleach mixed with ammonia is especially dangerous because it can create monochloramine or dichloramine (chloramine gases). You wonâ€™t see the gases in the air and you might not smell them because of the aroma of the chemicals you are using.
It is usually unwise to mix cleaning chemicals because there could be chemical reactions that releases toxic gases. Anytime you are cleaning a toilet with a chemical product that can be toxic (yes that includes most cleaning products), the windows should be open and the fans should be on. If you come into contact with gases that cause you to cough or experience burning, get fresh air as quickly as possible. Depending on how severely you are impacted, do not hesitate to call 911. I do recommend that you be seen at your emergency room, especially if you have lingering symptoms. ...Read more

Hi Dr, I was brushing toilet with harpic cleaner and a drop goes into my eye. I wash my eye with water. At that time, my eye became red. But after few?
Probably no harm: Even though Harpic contains hydrochloric acid, probably no harm will come from such a small exposure, especially if you quickly rinsed with tapwater. But if you have eye pain or redness that lasts more than a few hours, see a doctor to be safe. ...Read more
I ate pineapples from a friend's house. But later found that they keep it near toilet cleaners (harpic).Should I be worried?
No: You're almost a grown man. This fear is totally unfounded. Things like this that happen in the course of daily simply simply don't result in infections, cancer, or whatever it was that you are afraid of. Do yourself a favor and simply stop reading internet "scare" junk websites. These people pretend to be knowledgeable and concerned for your health. They are actually crooks. Be discerning. ...Read more

Today it was a windy day and I got something in my eye I've cleaned it out with saline eye cleaner but can't find anything now my eye is very saw red.
Several things: You should have this checked out, but a couple of possibilities include a corneal abrasion that requires a special technique to see under uv light, and/or a foreign body that is trapped under the upper lid. Sometimes it is just residual irritation that will go away on its own, but it is best to see a doctor for an evaluation, especially since you say the eye is very sore and red. ...Read more

I've been using eye drops, flannel and eye cleaner for 6 weeks, my eyes are clearer but still not better, how long does it take for blepharis, dry eye?
Should be clear now: If you've been using warm compresses each morning for at least 5 mins. Then that is adequate to allow your oil glands to create a better tear film. Go to your eye doctor, or an oculoplastics surgeon to see if you might have rosacea blepharitis, or another bacterial blepharitis that can be more resistant to standard lid hygiene protocol with baby shampoo. Eye cleaner/wipes may not be that effective. ...Read more
My eyes work very well but why are they always brownish and sometimes reddish. Why cant it be cleaner or whitish? Do I need to use any good eyedrops.
Function vs Cosmetic: Function is the vastly more important issue. I presume you are referring to your assessment of the appearance of your sclera & conjunctiva; best both (a) study these on Google & (b) consider seeing an ophthalmologist (MD), not an optometrist (not an MD) for more definitive information & options, pro & con. The capillaries in the conjunctive, when irritated, dilate & are thus more red. ...Read more

I was cleaning my bathroom and using a cleaner with bleach then my eyes started to water (u didn't get it in my eyes) and my lungs hurt but very mild?
Not serious: Bleach releases chlonine gas which in those concentrations is irritating but will not cause serious harm. The eyes, lungs and nasal passages will react to this level of chlorine but quickly will clear it out and all will normalize Next time have a little better ventilation. ...Read more

No: Contact lens cleaner and/or disinfectant should not be used as an eye drop. I see no reason it could not be used in the ears, but it would have no therapeutic effect. Since both eye and ear drops are readily available over the counter, you should use them instead. ...Read more

Is erythromycin the right script for a chemical contact with the eye? (oven cleaner) irritated my eye and second visit to the ER the couldn't belive it was given to me...
If you are referring to Erythromycin ophthalmic ointment, possibly. A chemical conjunctivitis like you have probably experienced would likely resolve with no treatment at all. Artificial tears can help symptoms, but time is the best therapy. Your doctor may have noted diffuse minor disruption of the corneal surface. Such findings may make you at risk for infection. The benefit of ointment is that it may lead to improvement of the foreign body sensation you are experiencing. Additionally, it may theoretically prevent infection.
A severe chemical conjunctivitis needs evaluation by an ophthalmologist. If you are not feeling better soon, see an eye doctor. ...Read more
