DO YOU HAVE REMEDIES OR MEDICINES FOR SKIN RASHES LIKE BOILS DUE TO EXPOSURE TO CHEMICALS?


Posted by DAMODAR

DEAR SIR,

WE ARE BASED IN INDIA AND ARE MANUFACTURERS OF BULK DRUG INTERMEDIATE OF LUMEFANTRINE.

THE WORKERS ARE EXPOSED TO THE END PRODUCT AFTER THE REACTION (PRODUCT NAME : 2,7-DICHLORO ACETYL FLOURENE) THE PRODUCT IS MADE FROM THE BASIC RAW MATERIAL CALLED 9H-FLOURENE WHICH IS A BYPRODUCT OF COAL TAR AND SOURCED FROM CHINA.

9H-FLOURENE IS FIRST UNDERGONE CHLORINATION AND THE PRODUCT WE GET IS CHLORINATED 9H-FLOURENE.

THIS CHLORINATED 9H-FLOURENE IS DISSOLVED IN METHYLENE DICHLORIDE AND ADDED TO THE MIXURE OF ALUMINIUM CHLORIDE + CHLORO ACETYL CHLORIDE. (FRIEDEL CRAFT REACTION) THIS MIXTURE IS DUMPED INTO A TANK CONSISTING OF ICE AND HCL AND WATER WHICH GENERATES SOME FUMES WHICH AFFECTS THE SKIN OF THE WORKERS AND CAUSE RASHES. AFTER THE PRODUCT IS DRIED AND WE GET 2,7-DICHLORO ACETYL FLOURENE. THE EXPOSURE TO THIS POWDER IS ALSO CAUSING RASHES TO THE SKIN AND IF CONTACT WITH EYES ALSO CAUSES WATERING OF EYES PROFUSELY.

SKIN RASHES ARE LIKE BOILS AND COVER THE ENTIRE FACE AND EVEN ON THE BODY.

WE HAVE TRIED VARIOUS MEDICATIONS LIKE OINTMENTS , ANTIBIOTICS ETC WITHOUT ANY RESULT. THE RASHES KEEP ON APPEARING REPEATEDLY.

PLEASE ADVICE.
