Cold water may be used. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse. Get medical attention immediately. In case of serious skin contact, wash with a disinfectant soap and cover the contaminated skin with an anti-bacterial cream and seek medical attention.
Inhalation:
If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention immediately. In case of serious inhalation, evacuate the victim to a safe area as soon as possible. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. WARNING: it may be hazardous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation when the inhaled material is toxic, infectious or corrosive. Seek immediate medical attention.
Ingestion:
Do NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Loosen tight clothing such as collar, tie, belt or waistband. Get medical attention when symptoms appear.
