Battery Acid on Skin?

Answer

Battery acid ion skin is very dangerous. Highly corrosive, it causes severe, possibly even third degree burns when it comes in direct contact with skin. Just the mist of the acid in the air is irritating to the eyes, throat and nose. If it happens to get sprayed directly in the eyes, blindness can occur. If the sulfuric acid mist is breathed in it will irritate the lungs and can even cause pulmonary edema (buildup of excess liquid in the lungs.)
