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?
