What will happen when body spray or perfume goes inside the eyes accidently? Is it dangerous? B S Nathan, Bangalore
Body sprays and perfumes invariably are alcohol-based and contain emoluments which can cause irritation to the eye. It is important to wash them out with water and apply a mild ointment which will enable the eye to heal. Per se, it causes irritation but is not dangerous.
