How should you treat a bleach burn?

You should treat a bleach burn like most other chemical burns – move to a safe area, remove any clothing and accessories covering the burn, and run cool water over it for 20 minutes. If the burn is mild, you can gently apply an aloe gel or cream to it and place a gauze pad over it. It is a good idea to contact a healthcare provider about the bleach burn even after home treatment; this is especially important if it is on the face, eyes, hands, genitals, scalp, across a joint, or if it was ingested.
