Brief Answer:
Seems the reaction is subsiding, use moisturising cream

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic ,
I have gone through your complaints and reviewed the attached photograph.

It seems the reaction is subsiding and that's why peeling of the skin over palms .
In such cases, I recommend my patients to apply a moisturizing cream containing white soft paraffin on the entire hands 2-3 times in a day for 7-10 days.

Various brands available are Moisturex soft cream, Parasoft cream, Olesoft cream.
You can use either of the above twice daily.

I woke up this morning feeling internal pain in my anus. I thought it was because I have not been to the Toilet, So I took Liquid Paraffin to soften my bowel we I eventually go to the toilet. But on going to the toilet I found out that my stool was OK and I felt free, but after 5 - 6 mins. I start to feel this pain most especially when am sitting down. I have taken time to look at my anus but there is no swollen or rash just that pain. Though early this year I had this issue of stool blood when ever I go to the toilet but my friend who is a pharmacist told me to take Liquid Paraffin, fruits, fiber and a whole lot of fluid which I have been doing and everything has been OK till this morning. So please am really troubled and I hope its not Pile.
