without it being actual sunburn. Im a disability support worker and in the course of my job I wear latex gloves for a long periods of time. This sensation was confined in the beginning just on both hands but especially on the tops of my hands. The sensation is associated with heat and moisture.....now this sensation is all over my body. In some places especially my hands arms and now face although not very visable the skin has changed....to a rough like texture and only noticable to the touch. Having a shower leaves me with imprints of my clothes to be come more prominate.....sleeping with my hands under my covers is enough to increase the sensation of a sunburn.....putting on clothes is like trying to wear clothes over a minor sunburn. Anything that increases my body heat or resticts my bodies evaporation of moisture increases the burning sensation with the worst effected area my hands. My allergist says that he does not think I am allergic to latex.... I have never being allergic to anything. Any Ideas?
