you know how in a remote if you don't depressurize it before you take the tank out its like a super blast and some of it comes out as liquid.

well, I was taking someones tank out for em and they didn't depressurize and it blasted me on my hand (nomal, not bad) but some of the liquid co2 got into some pretty bad cuts on my hand, it burned and then I figured it was fine, but today its starting to swell, it doesn't hurt bad, but the skin feels wierd and tender. should I take any precautions?

If you don't have anything helpful to say, shut your mouth. That will burn like crazy and he would be in a lot of pain.

Do as teddy said. Then, put neosporin and a bandage over the cut after you clean it out. If your skin starts to feel abnormally warm, and looks wierd in color it may be getting infected and you should go see a doc for that. But you probably just irratated it from the blast of co2.

CO2 isn't inherently dangerous, aside from not being able to support life (eg: you need oxygen to survive).

You probably just irritated your cut physically, perhaps giving yourself a minor case of frostbite.

Treat it as recommended above, just like a burn, keeping it clean and free of infection.

I'm actually surprised you're experiencing as much trauma as you did. I've blasted myself with a lot of liquid CO2, even held dry-ice (solid CO2 at about minus 100-degrees) but then, I don't have cuts on my hands. :dodgy:

I had a line break when I was playing and had the co2 hit my arm. I ended up with a co2 burn along with the dead skin being blown off. Just put some peroxide on it and then covered it with a bandage that had neosporin on it, It was healed within 10 days.
