Gasoline on Skin

My boyfriend works doing landscaping and today his gas chamber in his blower was leaking while he was working didnt notice for about 20-30 minutes. by that time it was already all over his shirt and pants. He came home and took a shower and now he says its burning, itches and its a large red spot....what should do?

Taking a long shower was a good idea.
I hope you took him to a doctor. If not, please do so. It could be worse than what he thinks.

Dispose of the clothes. Do not wash them...they could start a fire in your dryer.
