Barrier cremes containing zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to be applied on the skin is a way.

Prevention is better than cure.So use gloves and full sleeved shirts while coming in contact with these chemicals.

Wash the exposed areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion or a cream containing zinc oxide as it will help in soothing the skin.Also use plenty of mositurisers.

I hope that helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries. Kind regards.
