There are occupational medical clinics in California that can help with this.  You don't need a reference, you need an Occ Doc who specializes in skin conditions.  Even if he/she doesn't have all the answers about burns, chances are good he/she will know how to find the reigning expert in this area faster than you can.

Don't go to a clinic owned by a major corporation.  Go to one connected to a teaching hospital.  I'm on the Board of Advisor for the Mt.. Sinai Occupational Medical Clinic if you'd like me to ask around for you.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Medical outcomes of skin exposure to bromine/acetic acid

Dear Colleagues,
Over the past few months I've described the condition where a person had 2nd degree burns to their face from a 3:1 acetic acid/bromine solution exposure.
I a few instances people have responded that the effects of the exposure diminishes over time and can take 203 years before it is gone.
I'm looking for stories, statements, people, journal articles, or anything really that can document this to be the most likely medical outcome.
If you know of someone that know, please contact me
