Chemical burn injury, as with all other forms of skin injury, will heal best under optimum wound healing conditions to minimize the risk of scarring. This usually means that the healing environment must be clean and moisture-controlled. Careful attention to wound cleansing and the use of an antiseptic cream/ointment or silver impregnated non-stick dressings are recommended.

Scarring may occur if the wound is deep or if it gets infected.

Hope this helps!
