Help, please...hubby got face full of gasoline

I'm always asking for help from yall, but you always come through. Hubby just got a face full of gasoline sprayed on his face. Luckily, he was wearing glasses, so it didn't go into his eyes. But his cheeks and inside his nose are burning. What do we do? I've tried to look on the internet, but guess I don't know how to look 'cause I can't find anything! Please help...

Flush with lots of water and call poison control right away. If I were him I would jump into the shower and just let the water rain down on my face.

I had this happen to me once. He will be fine if the skin does not blister, but make that phone call to play it safe.

Whew! It's ok. Poison control instructed rinsing first with plain water, then soap and water and then putting on cortisone cream on. Thanks for your prompt response!

I feel for him. I know the pain he is going through. I am very happy to hear he will be OK!

When I was much younger I worked at a summer camp. I was carrying a gas tank full of gas to one of our motorboats. The gas splashed up and hit me right between the legs. The burning was horrible. I went to the Dr. and got checked out. Like your husband, thankfully everything was fine, but until I had my daughter I was quite nervous.
