If you guys are frequent users of hand sanitizers, maybe you guys need to buckle down a little bit. The FDA issued a warning about all alcohol-based hand sanitizers, and let’s say it’s something very least expected.
According to News Nation Now, people are getting hand sanitizer in their eyes from either “splashing or touching”. This is causing severe irritation and damage to the eyes. The FDA reports that they have seen cases of all ages, but children are affected the most. From January 2018 to April 2021, the FDA received over 3,600 reports.
The FDA suggests that when using hand sanitizers, people should completely rub their hands dry. If hand sanitizer splashes into your eye, then you should rinse it out immediately. Now The FDA does not plan on making changes to the Drug Fact label, but wanted to warn people of the growing safety issue instead.
Now, cousins, I see why this has become an issue. The use of hand sanitizers has increased during the coronavirus pandemic. Now let’s keep it real; this is something that is very much common sense. Either way, it goes, be sure to wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. That is the only effective way to prevent the spread of infections and disease.
