Easy OFF chemical burn

I burned my self cleaning my oven with easy off about three weeks ago and now the burns have scabs on them and sometime pus comes out.  Should I be concerned or is this part of the healing process

Hi there!

While the scabs may be normal, the pus is not. The pus demonstrated that there is an infection underneath. I would suggest getting this examined by a doctor if it would require drainage. Meanwhile you could try keeping the region clean and applying an antibiotic ointment over it, keeping the wound open.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
