Different ways people can be exposed to and effected by Methane.
Most exposures occur when people inhale Methane. Methane can go into homes through sewer traps or foundation cracks. People can be exposed by inhaling the chemical at work, cooking on a gas stove, or entering confined spaces such as manholes, silos, animal waste pits, septic tanks and sewers.
Because methane evaporates quickly, it is usually not found in food or drinking water. Very low-level exposure can occur when contaminated water is used for drinking or food preparation or when children eat contaminated soil.
Methane gas does not pass readily through intact skin. Methane in its extremely cold liquefied form.
You should remove yourself from the source of exposure.
If you have got Liquefied Gas on your skin, remove soiled clothing, wash the affected area with lukewarm water and soap for at least 10-15 minutes and seek medical advice. If you have inhaled high levels of methane seek medical advice
