Viral homemade slime recipe gives 11-year-old girl 3rd-degree burns

  • A Massachusetts girl is recovering after she suffered second and third-degree burns to her hands from the popular do-it-yourself slime project

An nearly identical case of severe hand burns occurred earlier this month with a 10-year-old girl in Prestwich, England making rainbow-colored slime.

Doctors say Kathleen is expected to make a full recovery. That's what may have been the case with Kathleen, who was woken in the middle of the night by a sudden pain in her hands. What she described as a "really hot and tingly" feeling progressed to blisters-what treating physicians are now saying are second- and third-degree burns.

Siobhan Quinn didn't stop her daughter, Kathleen, from making homemade slime from a popular DIY recipe.

"They were scary to look at", Kathleen added.

The use of too much of one ingredient, Borax, is said to have caused second and third degree burns on the hands of an 11-year-old girl in MA. I told her we should wait a bit.

Kathleen's family took her to the hospital where they learned she had second and third-degree burns on her hands as a result from prolonged exposure to the slime.

A quick YouTube search produces several slime or "gak" recipes using borax mixed with glue, water and food coloring.

"I feel bad", Siobhan told the news outlet.

The popularity of the slime concoction soared earlier this year on social media. Her parents, on the other hand, are taking it upon themselves to warn other parents about taking extra precautions when dealing with common chemicals such as borax for children's projects.

When she came home, her dad put ointment on her hands and placed them in white gloves to relieve the pain.

Though the recipe Deejay found online called for Borax, it is not easy to find in the United Kingdom because it can cause eye irritation or damage a person's fertility, the Evening News reported.

Mrs. Quinn told ABC 13 she understands why so many parents think homemade slime is safe.

Kathleen's mother says her daughter had made the slime many times before without any problems. "It's fine. Nothing happened to my child.' We made it a million times, too", Quinn said.
