After a week of pain, numbness, and tingling in my fingers, I went to an urgent care facility and was diagnosed by the doctor as having sustained a chemical burn from a sink drain liquid which dripped onto my hand.

My daughter has a possible chemical burn on her hand and has been experiencing some headaches, dizziness, and fatigue and nausea.
