Remove the victim to fresh air, unloose clothing or change him, if clothing is contaminated. If necessary, rinse oral cavity and nasal cavity with water. Protect the victim against chill and call medical help!
If on skin: Remove immediately contaminated clothing (remove watches, rings, if they are in places of contact with skin), do not pull contaminated clothing over face! Rinse affected skin area under stream of warm water, if possible (30–35 °C), for 10 to 30 minutes and make sure that flowing water does not get into contact with those parts of body that were not contaminated. Do not use a brush, soap or neutralising agents! Cover the affected area with a sterile dressing, do not use any ointments or pharmaceutical products. Protect the victim against chill. Call a physician immediately!

Call a physician immediately!
Rinse eyes immediately and thoroughly under stream of water for 10 to 30 minutes in the direction from the inner to the outer ocular angle (to prevent running of water in the other, non-affected eye, mouth and nose). Never use any neutralising solutions! If the victim keeps his eyelid tightly closed, use reasonable degree of force to open it. If the victim wears contact lenses, remove them immediately. The victim must always consult an ophthalmologist!
DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING - higher risk of harm to digestive tract!!! Risk of perforation of oesophagus and stomach! RINSE MOUTH IMMEDIATELY WITH WATER AND GIVE TO DRINK 2-5 dl of cold water to alleviate thermal effect of the caustic.
Due to almost immediate effect to mucous membranes, it is suitable to offer immediately tap water than loose time by looking for chilled liquid – each minute of delay causes irreversible harm to mucous membranes! Soda water or mineral waters are not recommended, as they may release gaseous carbon dioxide. It is not recommended to consume a lot of liquid, as it could induce vomiting and possible aspiration of the caustic in lungs).
Do not force the victim to drink, especially if he/she feels pain in mouth or throat. In this case, make the victim rinse his/her mouth. DO NOT ADMINISTER ACTIVATED CARBON! (blackening will make examination of mucous membranes more difficult and activated carbon has no positive effect in case of acids and lye). Do not give anything to eat. Do not administer anything by mouth if the victim is unconscious or has convulsions. Call a physician immediately!
