My sister was using my lye to clean out some pipes and I think some lye water accidently splashed on her. It isn't a huge burn or anything but it's still bad.

So any help will be greatly appreciated

You can call your local ER and ask them, or even poison controle. There is probably a phone number on the container as well.

OOOhhhhhh- lye turns your skin to soap literally- I would go to the doc or er- it should heal fine for a small one..
My man has had a few caustic burns- he used to work for a soap company and would haul barrels of lye- don't ask me how he got burned if it was in barrels but he told me it turns your skin to soap- he also said they just healed on their own- he would just run it under cold water for 20 minutes or so..
