... do I know how serious this is?
Geez after working in nursing homes for years, I hate that stuff, lolol... How long did you leave it on? It can be on for up to 14 hrs. Your skin doesn't absorb very much of it. So systemically you're ok. It may locally make your skin irritated. Did you take a thorough shower? Are your feet red at all? If the swelling persists or gets even worse, go to the er or urgent care center.
