Cleaned with bleach, now have small clear very itchy bumps, started between fingers, spread to arms, dexclorfeniramina not working. What can I do?

Cleaned with bleach, now have small clear very itchy bumps, started between fingers, spread to arms, dexclorfeniramina not working. What can I do?

Contact dermatitis: Sounds like a contact dermatitis reaction to bleach which is a strong irritant. A topical steroid cream will help along with an antihistamine for itching. If it continues or gets worse see a doctor for stronger medicine. Wear gloves when cleaning with bleach and dilute it with water.
