I got a chemical burn on two fingers when Drano dripped onto them while I was pouring it into my sink. I washed it off quickly but for only 5 minutes, not long enough. The fingers were tingling, numb and painful for one week so I went to urgent care. I was given silver sulfadiazine cream. It still pains a lot after using for 1 day. The cream is very strong and my skin is shriveling up. I am not sure it is doing any good.
