Moisturizer: Your skin must have gotten irritated by the chemical, use a thick moisturizer such as vaseline and over the counter Hydrocortisone cream. If it does not work in a day or 2 seek medical help for stronger medications.

Take your hands out.
Wear rubber gloves.
Use hand lotion.
Chemical burn: Chemical burn from chlorine should be treated according to the severity. Rinse the area with tap running water for 15-20 minutes. If area is small and looks like a sunburn just treat with aloe and Ibuprofen for pain. Small blisters may occur. Large, or too many clear or blood filled blisters then go to urgent care. Check: www.

Hand is burning with some cuts n its red. Wat can I do I think its from the soap n sanitzer used at work. One has bleech in it. Wrk at resterant.
Need to heal: Do you use latex gloves? They can be irritating as well. If painful and angry red could be infected. Generic bactroban (mupirocin) is the safest topical antibiotic. Topical vit d 3 oil on the irritated skin can be helpful. Avoid irritants until it heals by using non-latex gloves if in food preparation. Use plain soap and water for cleaning hands.
