Cozy1200 Posted November 5, 2007 Share Posted November 5, 2007 While cleaning up I had a little bit of a scare. Somewhere in the process of cleaning I must have leaned up again something with epoxy on it. I had a blob of epoxy on my T-shirt directly over my stomach and I could feel it touching my skin. I lifted my shirt to see if I had epoxy on me. I was horrified to see a bunch of little red bumps like a rash. I instantly striped my t-shirt and clean up with some clean vinegar. I then washed it off with soap and water. Within an hour the bumps and redness disappeared. This may be a normal reaction when epoxy touch your skin. I won't be taking any chances. The last thing I want/need is to develop a reaction to epoxy. I'm not the type that normally have problems like this. I don't have any reactions or allergies of any sort. I've already heeded other's advice and double glove with latex and nitrile. I'll need to pay closer attention to prevent this happening again. I probably start wearing another shirt or offer a little more protection. Any other suggestions?
