Skin on Hands is burning

Hello. My husband did some roof repair earlier today and laid several missing sections of asphalt tile. It has been about 6 hours and he says his hands are burning like they are on fire. Could he be having an allergic reaction to the tiles? If so, what should he do? Thanks.

Hi

The rash could be the result of irritation an allergic reaction to some allergen encountered during thr repairing of your room.
Your husband needs to observe this for some time to see if the bumps decrease or increase in intensity. In the meanwhile, he may try moisturizing lotions and some over-the-counter antihistaminics like cetirizine or loratidine. Anti-itch creams such as diphenhydramine (benadryl) may provide relief.

If the rashes persist he can see a doctor who might examine and prescribe an anti allergic medication.

Do keep us updated on the progress.

Regards
