4.1 Description of first aid measures
Inhalation Remove victim immediately from source of exposure. Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.
 Ingestion Do not give the patient anything orally. In the event of swallowing, if the quantity is small (no more than one mouthful), rinse the mouth with water and consult a doctor. Seek medical attention immediately, showing the label. If swallowed accidentally, do not allow to drink, do not induce vomiting and transfer to hospital immediately by ambulance. Show the label to the doctor.
Skin Contact Remove contaminated clothing and wash the skin thoroughly with soap and water or a recognised cleaner. Watch out for any remaining product between skin and clothing, watches, shoes, etc. In the event of an allergic reaction, seek medical attention.

If the contaminated area is widespread and/or there is damage to the skin, a doctor must be consulted or the patient transferred to hospital.
