Signs and Symptoms of Exposure Irritating to skin, nasal, respiratory tracts and eyes. Can be toxic. Persons developing hypersensitivity (anaphylactic) reactions must receive immediate medical attention. Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure Persons allergic to Neomycin (base) or Neomycin Sulfate will experience an allergic reaction to this material. Emergency and First Aid Procedures In case of skin contact, flush with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. In case of eye contact, may cause irritation. Flush eyes with copious quantities of water for 15 minutes. Assure adequate flushing by separating eyelids with fingers. Persons developing serious hypersensitivity reactions must receive immediate medical attention.
