11/3/2019 Caller applied the product on 10/12/2019 in his garage. Caller states he could of come in contact with the product via his skin. He has a bad habit of chewing his fingernails and reports there are open sores under his fingernails that the product may have gotten into. He states he did not wash up until later that day. His symptoms felt like a sting at first the same weekend that the product was used. Since then he has developed some blood circulation issues. He has been to several different doctors and to the emergency room twice, with no reasoning behind the symptoms. His regular physician couldn't pinpoint where the symptoms are coming from, and an overnight clinic twice could not find a pulse in his right wrist. His symptoms include low blood pressure, discoloration under his nails, skin discoloration, and bruising out of nowhere with extreme discomfort. He has a nerve conductive study and a computerized tomography scan scheduled at the end of the month. 11/29/2019 Attempted call back to the original caller. A message was left requesting follow up information. Caller is returning previous message. Caller had a computerized tomography scan with dye, electromyography, and an ultrasound. He was found to have a blood clot in his right hand. He was advised to take baby aspirin. He also had an infection under his skin, and was prescribed an antibiotic.
