Mr. Clean magic eraser burns. What in the product caused them? And how can I go about treating the burns?

Friction abrasions

Rubbing human skin causes heat and friction. The "burn" is an abrasion from the rubbing, which takes off the top layer of skin cells. It is not a thermal burn (such as with hot coffee). Magic Erasers are not toys, and should not be used on skin. For an abrasion that's not oozing, some hydrocortisone 1% cream may help. For one that's oozing a bit, some Neosporin cream or ointment may help.
