If it's on your skin.. it would HURT! Seriously.. you need to provide a lot more info in your question. In order to help, we need to know what the HCl is coming in contact with.

Hi, Jamie.

Marc is right. HCl is a strongly dissociating mineral acid which is capable of dissolving some metals into metal salts, while releasing hydrogen gas; and is capable of dissolving many metal oxides and hydroxides into metal salts, while releasing water. We need a more detailed question please.
