||Javel waters and extracts are aqueous solutions of sodium hypochlorite. Toxic effects depend on the concentration of the solution used; usual dilutions cause little effects. Acute toxicity: ingestion of concentrated solutions causes irritation of the gastro-intestinal tract sometimes with vomiting of blood, which and can lead to necrosis, perforation and severe after-effects, shock, haemolysis, and possibly hypernatraemia; projections on skin and eyes may cause severe burns with possible ocular after-effects; mixture with acids liberates chlorine which may cause strong bronchial irritation and acute pulmonary oedema; mixture with ammonium hydroxide liberates chloramine which is also irritant for the respiratory tract. Chronic toxicity: nail lesions; dermatosis.
