Little Girl Sustains 3rd Degree Burns While Making Homemade Slime

Little Girl Sustains 3rd Degree Burns While Making Homemade Slime 11-Year-Old Woke up with Burns on Her Hands After Popular 'Craft Project' at Sleepover

Rebekha D'Stephano of Manchester, England, told the Manchester Evening News earlier this month that her 10-year-old daughter, Deejay Jemmett, suffered chemical burns to her hands after making "unicorn slime".

Kathleen Quinn was taking part in a popular do-it-yourself project at her MA home. While Kathleen was at a sleepover, she woke up in extreme pain. She will recover, but for now has to wear splints on her hands.

The young girl's parents brought her to the hospital and she was treated for second- and third-degree burns.

Doctors determined her blisters came from extended exposure to Borax, which is an ingredient in homemade slime. "Her skin finally had enough". She noticed weeks ago that Kathleen's hands had been more sensitive than usual and thought perhaps eczema had caused the reaction. "This happened from playing with the finished product over time".

Some slime tutorials feature use of an oven or microwave when making the concoction, so the safest way to make the goo is with a trusted adult. Slime of a similar sort is a common science project for children. Borax, Elmer's Glue and Borax are the main ingredients in the slime. It can also be unsafe if inhaled or ingested. Her story has prompted a safety warning to parents.

Ohio Co. under Severe Thunderstorm Watch
OHIO COUNTY, Ky. - While it appears Ohio County has dodged winter for the year, its flirtation with severe weather continues. Large hail and strong winds hit parts of Texas and Oklahoma as a storm system rolled through the Southern Plains.

'Just because you have it around, just because it seems to be perfectly safe for those types of applications doesn't mean it should be used in anything else, particularly household slime'.

Quinn's mother, Siobhan, said by the time they picked the girl up from her friend's house the following morning, she was crying in pain and her hands were covered in blisters.

Kathleen Quinn, 11, landed in the hospital after attempting to make homemade slime at her house in Rockland, Massachusetts.

"In some ways, I'm not really surprised because, prolonged contact with any kind of chemical can lead to either chemical burns or an allergic reaction", said Dr. Max Gomez. "We made cookies instead".
