If you have ever accidentally dripped hot grease on yourself or bumped the edge of a pan taken out of a hot oven, you know how badly such injuries can hurt.

If you are currently navigating the healing process after suffering serious burns on one or more parts of your body, you are likely relying on various people for support.

A chemical burn can place your vision at risk

You wear safety goggles at work because you know the dangers of the chemicals you work with and the consequences of getting those substances in your eyes.
