What are the symptoms of benzene exposure?

The symptoms of exposure to benzene vary greatly depending on the route of exposure, and the concentration of the chemical one came in contact with. They include drowsiness, headaches, vomiting, and convulsions.

There are four routes of exposure to benzene, and each has its dangers

Benzene is a human carcinogen, which means that frequent exposure can result in cancer. This is the case with tainted sunscreen, as people are regularly exposed to benzene from the product through skin absorption. However, your exposure to benzene can be different, as it can also occur through:

  • inhalation
  • skin or eye contact
  • ingestion

Exposure of the eyes, skin, or lungs might cause tissue injury and irritation. People who breathe in high concentrations of benzene can develop the following symptoms within a few minutes to several hours:

  • drowsiness
  • dizziness
  • irregular heartbeat
  • headaches
  • tremors
  • unconsciousness

What is extremely important to highlight is that only people who have been using benzene sunscreen for a long time can file a claim, as people who only have symptoms that may be related to toxic exposure do not qualify. Our attorneys will need to have a letter from a medical specialist describing how your acute myeloid leukemia is the direct consequence of benzene exposure. Very few people will experience the symptoms above, as they are usually the hallmark of exposure to great levels of benzene, which is not the case with tainted sunscreen.
