As far as I know you can only polymorph to stop burning,but you will continue to burn once you return to your original form. Although, polymorphing will give you precious time to find some healing.

How long does it go on for? Seems kind of overpowered.

Chemical burn? Depends on how much time you spent in mustard gas.

Yeah, try running out of the cloud, that will cut down the burning substantially.

By which I think he means r'u'nning out of the cloud, as in using the keyboard command to run.

I spent 2 keystrokes in the gas, and it still hauntes me for 2 levels until I died, needs tweaking.

I usually teleport with a wand immediatly after I step on a gas trap, sometimes I don't even get damaged.

With somewhat above-average Agility, you can even r[u]n out of the cloud before you get damaged, just like with sleeping gas traps.

These kill me every time. There needs to be some antidote for or some way to stop the burning, or only have them generate later. Total game ender. #MustardGasSucks

They're quite annoying. The damage seems to linger quite a bit, also, even if you run out of the gas as soon as possible, at least in my experience. Nevertheless, usually with a bottle full of healing liquid you can sip a bit every time your health gets to dangerous levels and survive with no problem.
