I accidentally swallowed about a shot of 50% isopropyl alcohol.

I accidentally swallowed about a shot of 50% isopropyl alcohol. I cut my finger and I had some 50% isopropyl alcohol. So while I was sitting at my table I pored some on my finger. I used a glass that was on the table to catch the alcohol. I put the glass aside and continued eating. I had a bottle of ice tea and I forgot about the alcohol and I poured into the glass some of the ice tea and took a drink of some of what I poured into the glass. What do you recommend I do?

I have a friend whos job is as a tool maker, he has worked as such for 15yrs. Concern is with his hands. the equipment/tools used are cleaned with Isopropyl alcohol and for months now, he has noticed his hands red and irritated. Furthermore, they have a burned skin smell to them. Can you help? what can he use to heal his hands? He doesnt use the alcohol but we think it may be the constant contact with the tools which are rubbed with Isopropyl causing this problem.. Please advise.

Hi, I am 5 weeks pregnant and have held a cotton ball soaked with isopropyl alcohol 91 % on a few pimples on my chin. I have done this for a total of 20 minutes over the course of a few days, and have inevitably inhaled the fumes while doing so. Other times I have used alcohol was briefly to disinfect sites for hormones injections. Have I caused any permanent damage (physical & mental) to the growing fetus by doing so? Thanks
