Dettol Soap in Eye

So I have this compulsive need to wash my eyes with tap water every few hours. I have been doing that for weeks now. Every time I washed my eyes, they burned. Today I found out that the Dettol Liquid Handwash I use to wash my hands doesn't completely wash out of my hand. Even after rinsing, a part of it still stays there. Maybe that goes into my eye and causes the burning and irritation. I don't have any such symptom today as I did not wash my eyes today. Can this cause me any long term problem in my eyes?

Hello..
Do not worry...I don't think anything would happen as while you wash hands the dettol it would have got diluted...I don't think you need to worry about it..from next time make sure that you will wash it well..thank you
