Chemical burn accounts for a small proportion of burns in burn patient population. However, chemical injuries own importance to their deep tissue destruction which continues long after the initial exposure. YUHANROX(R) is a domestic bleach which has been widely used in Korea. Chemical burn by the domestic bleach is an unusual case. METHODS: A 70 yrs old female soiled with stool, her husband wiped the mess with YUHANROX(R). Skin edema, erythematous lesion was developed the second day, and she was admitted to our hospital via emergency department.
Complete epithelization was done after 3 times STSG but, severe scar was formed.
We report this case to warn about the dangers of domestic bleaches chemical substances and to emphasize that they should be used with caution. Public relation of the primary care of the chemical burn injury is needed.
