Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using the Ask a Doctor service.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. It seems that you have developed contact dermatitis or an allergic reaction to what you were handling. I would request you to upload an image of the affected areas. You can upload the attachments using the facility on the upper right of this page. Alternatively you can email the attachments to YYYY@YYYY with the query id 385714 and my name mentioned in the subject.

I will await your response. Based on your inputs I would guide you further.
