Generally chemical burns are managed with immediate water irrigation. Cresol is one of the few chemicals that cannot be safely washed off with water. If cresol chemical burn is washed off with small amount of water, the involved area may extend. Thus cresol chemical burn must be managed with caution if a generous supply of water is not available. We report a case of cresol chemical burn with a review of literatures.
