A pediatrician is warning consumers of the potential dangers of the Crayola Bathtub Fingerpaint Soap after one of their patients suffered a chemical burn after using it.
The pediatric group posted a warning on Facebook after seeing a patient with severe burns and several layers of skin lost due to the fingerpaint soap.
The group says the young boy’s mother tried reaching out to the company several times and has not received a response back. The pediatric group also conducted some research and found that many reviews were positive for the product, however, there were many that also stated that children suffered rashes and burns due to the product.
The Crayola Bathtub Fingerpaint Soap is a colorful soap that lets children fingerpaint while in the bathtub.
No recall has been made on the product.
