Patient :At work i was asked to clean an old plastic first aid box. They told me to put it in the dish washer so i did. Its one of those ones that only take 3 minutes so it gets really hot. When i opened the door a lot of steam came out right into my face. It wasn't till after that i remembered plastic is toxic when heated up. Will i get sick from breathing in the steam and getting it in my eyes? I cant find much on google. What are the symptoms to look for??
