*Euphorbia Sap Skin Contact/Ingestion Protocol


The milky sap contained in this plant is extremely irritating to the skin. It can be toxic and should be approached with extreme caution. If swallowed, it may cause burning to the mouth, lips and tongue.

Skin contact may cause severe irritation, redness and a burning sensation. Contact with the eyes may cause severe pain and, in some cases, temporary blindness for several days. Symptoms may worsen over 12 hours.

For eye exposure, flush eyes with fresh, cool water for at least 15 minutes and repeat after a few minutes. Seek medical attention if there is no relief. Over-the-counter antihistamines may provide relief for some people. Deaths have been recorded from swallowing the sap. If swallowed, one should immediately seek medical attention.

For skin contact, take dry baking soda and sprinkle it on the affected area. Rub the baking soda all over the sap/affected area. This will cause the sap to begin to ball up in the baking soda, so that it may be more easily removed.

**The Cactus King always recommends seeking immediate care/advice from a medical professional before attempting a self-administered treatment. When in doubt, call 911**
