Maalox and water solution for tear gas

A 50% water/antacid solution will counter the effects of tear gas. Very useful information!

3. This needs saying...pepper spray is not tear gas
Treatment slightly differs

Pepper spray is essentially capsein. You know what makes peppers spicy. If you got milk, that's the best. If not lots of wate... Yes maalox sort of works.

Tear gas is a chemical weapon and this will work short term...you really need decontamination.

Remove clothes and a cold shower (20 minutes at least) is the procedure.

Oh and for both monitor patient fr breathing issues and take my word on this, even if you are just helping it hurts.

Oh and clothes. Pepper wash them a couple times, the same goes with tear gas, and use gloves to avoid getting crap on you. You may want to take pepper bags, large ones, to put contaminated clothes into.

Oh and if (when) it goes into eyes, remove contacts and wash for twenty minutes with water, or GI you have it normal saline
