Okay, I'm not sure if this should be in Health and Fitness or The Beauty Bar (I did a search for relevant topics and nothing came up--but if there is one please redirect me to it). At any rate, I just got shampoo in my eye! "Just" was about an hour ago. It burned like hell, then started to sting and ache. It was probably the worst pain I'd ever felt. I rinsed and rinsed and rinsed with cool water for about three minutes, and did a lot of panicking (I called my mother in tears--I ALMOST called 911) and she assured me that there wouldn't be a shampoo on the market that would make a person go blind. She told me that there are babies who get shampoo in their eyes and even they're okay in the end. I was like, "I'm not using baby shampoo!" Now, my eye aches, and it's still very red and it hurts when I touch it. There's also been quite a bit of mucus-like substance in it; it's kind of thick and stringy. I think I got most of the shampoo out, though. In fact, I'm sure my crying helped to wash it away. My husband suggested I use Visine but I was scared to put anything in it. What do you all do when you get shampoo in your eye? How common is this and how long will my eye hurt and be red? I thought it would be better an hour later.
