Weili from Singapore asked a question

What should I do next if I accidentally spilled diesel fuel on an open wound?

32 year old male. I spilled diesel fuel on my fingers 3 days ago. I felt some stinging as my fingers had a recent wound from the day before. I'm worried about the carcinogenic effects of hydrocarbon exposure. Should I seek medical attention?

Dear Weili,

Accidental exposure of the wound the diesel fuel can cause pain and stinging. If this happens, you should wash and rinse it off. With a brief contact of the fuel on the wound, I do not think there will be significant long term carcinogenic effects from the exposure. 

Keep the wound clean. You can wash it with antiseptic solution or water. If you have an antibiotic or antiseptic ointment, you can apply this on the wound. You should seek medical attention if the wound becomes red and painful and if there is pus discharge, as this may indicate the wound has become infected.
