Omg help me

This thread isn't related to fish, but I thought maybe I could get some help on it.

When i was using my Aquarium Pharmacuticals freshwater master kit to test my water, 5 drops of the nitrIte bottle on my pants (cotton). Mainly on my right thigh. I immedietly took my pants (and underwear, lol)off right there and went in the bath tub and ran water both of my legs for 15 minutes. Will I be ok?

Btw, the bottle said that it causes burns and contains hydrochloric acid.

If it is not burning right now you will be fine. I have dumped a whole kit on me before. You did the right thing and as long as it is not burning sensations you are good!

Good deal, you should be fine then. I have had much purer HCL spilled on me before, so long as it is washed off fast there is no issues. Now put some clothes on, there are little kids on this forum :P lol

I agree with what neejar said. You'd know if something was going to be wrong...it would have happened already.
