Hydroalcoholic gel: attention to children's eyes

[15-02-2021] Hydroalcoholic gel: attention to children's eyes

The gesture is well tried and tested and the children have quickly assimilated it: washing their hands with water or hydroalcoholic gel has become a reflex, but be careful with clumsy gestures, especially in the smallest ones!

Most often, it is the dispensers found at the entrance of the shops which can easily splash into the eyes of the children that are involved. And don't forget that freshly disinfected little hands tend to rub their eyes often!

However, hand gel contains more than 70% alcohol, which not only causes severe pain on contact with the eyes, but can also cause serious eye damage.

So be particularly careful with your children and if an accident occurs, first rinse your eyes thoroughly with clear water before consulting an eye doctor.
