My dad threw his back out at work today. I agreed to give him a backrub with this generic Bengay stuff. I forgot that the stuff burns when you touch your eye. I go to swivel my contact, and now I'm ready to run through the house screaming like the woman in Psycho.

:cry: What gets this stuff out? My eye's been burning for a half hour, and the burn (which is surprisingly refreshing, might I add) has been progressively escalating the entire time. Help!

Any DANGER instructions on the label? I mean, other than "do not put this in your eye".

Or you could leave the contact in your eye and take your whole eyeball out and after your dad goes to sleep, exchange it with one of his eyeballs. I mean, you were rubbing his back with the stuff, so it's technically his fault.

I remember one time putting Bengay on my mom's back. When I was done I went into the bathroom to wash my hands, but since I had to pee I thought I'd do that first so I'd only have to wash my hands once.
BIG mistake. Bengay doesn't only burn eyes.:e2cry:

Do the same to your other eye. Then you will have balance and all will be well in the universe.

Water, and lots of it. Basically stick your eye under the stream of water from the faucet.

Oh. Well.

*Ahem*

Tsuki, I recommend these (http://www.glasseyes.com/cgi-bin/products.pl?ref=human). Or perhaps a fetching patch.

I didn't realize I had a bit of hot sauce (courtesy of a Taco Bell lunch) still on my hand once and took out a lens to dampen it...

The good thing was that after that, my eye wasn't dry any more. It watered for the rest of the day.

This reminds me of the time I was eating chilli doritos and rubbed my eye. Doh!

Try the squirty thing on your kitchen faucet, and keep rinsing your eye with cool water. If you don't have a squirty thing, stick your eye under the faucet.

I had to wear a plastic mouthguard for a few months while my dislocated jaw was being treated. Obviously, I had to take it out to eat.

Well, a friend and I were going out to lunch, but first decided to go out in his yard so he could, as he'd promised repeatedly to do, show me how to use a can of pepper spray.

When I took my mouthguard out to eat, about an hour later, I learned I had NOT sufficiently washed my hands enough to remove ALL of the pepper spray. Oops. (Thankfully, I didn't rub my eyes...but my mouth burned for a while...)

That's what you get for touching your dad and then touching your eye.

Not to be a pain in the ass, Tsuki, (something in which I am) will you continue to draw folks to your venial trials and tribulations by starting yet another thread on your smaller than life mishaps?

So, asking advice on how to get Bengay out of my eye counts as a venial tribulation? Because I've been told that it'd worthy of the Poison Control Center. :Shrug:

You would've touched Michael Jackson?

If it were MJ, I would've run screaming the opposite direction...nevermind touching him and then touching my eye.

I'm glad she does it. It makes me feel better about the random bullshit in my own life.

That, and I make posts like that too...

Makes a difference, someone touching him for a change*.

Shamone, motherf***er!

I understand that rubbing wasabi and lemon juice into the affected area may help.

Wise advice-then you can waxh that out with some cheap scotch and drink your eye wash!

Flush your eye out with milk.
...preferably kangaroo milk but really any milk will suffice.

Urine is sterile, so you should probably get someone to golden shower your face.

My husband and I were at Olive Garden once...he'd taken me there to cheer me up 'cause I had had a bad day (not to be confused with my current food poisoning/cat blowing up my TV week...this was another day). He was squeezing a peppercini or whatever the fuck those little green things are into his salad...and it squirted STRAIGHT into his eye. I fell out of my chair laughing.

It cheered me up though!!

So from then on, whenever I'm in a bad mood, he goes, "Want me to squirt my eye with a pepper?" And I start laughing. :)

A highly concentrated saline formula (commonly referred to as: salt) will probably help too...
