Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
Eye Contact: Avoid eye contact. This product has not been tested for acute eye hazards. May be irritating to the eyes upon direct contact. Exposure to mists and vapors may be irritating to the eyes. These effects are transient, and complete recovery follows.
Skin Contact: Avoid skin contact. This product may cause slight skin irritation upon direct contact. Prolonged or repeated skin contact may result in dryness, chapping, and reddening.
Inhalation: This product is not expected to pose an inhalation hazard under conditions of foreseeable use. Caution should be taken to minimize exposure to aerosols/mists of this product. Acute and chronic overexposures may be irritating to the respiratory tract. Inhalation of high concentrations of this product can cause central nervous system depression and narcosis. Exposure to extremely high concentrations may have anesthetic effects but are completely reversible upon cessation of exposure. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling this product can be harmful or fatal.
Ingestion: Do not ingest. Ingestion of small quantities is usually nonfatal unless aspiration occurs. Aspiration may lead to chemical pneumonitis which is characterized by pulmonary edema and hemorrhage and may be fatal. Signs of lung involvement include increased respiratory rate, increased heart rate, and a bluish discoloration of the skin. Coughing, choking, and gagging are often noted at the time of aspiration. Gastrointestinal discomfort may develop, followed by vomiting with a further risk of aspiration. Severe oral intoxication will lead to intense burning of the throat and may result in drowsiness, dullness, numbness, and headache followed by dizziness, weakness, and nausea. Loss of consciousness and convulsions followed by death may result.

Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure: Drying and chapping may make the skin more susceptible to other irritants, sensitizers and disease.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
Prolonged or repeated skin contact may result in dryness, chapping, and reddening. Chronic overexposures may be irritating to the respiratory tract. Inhalation of high concentrations of this product can cause central nervous system depression and narcosis.

Skin Contact: No treatment is necessary under ordinary circumstances. Remove contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated area thoroughly with soap and water. Use a hand or skin lotion to prevent dryness. If redness or irritation occurs and persists, seek medical attention.
Inhalation: If victim exhibits signs of vapor intoxication remove to fresh air. If discomfort persists seek medical attention. If breathing has stopped or is irregular, administer artificial respiration and supply oxygen if it is available. If victim is unconscious, remove to fresh air and seek immediate medical attention.
