My hand is chapped and red and has a burning sensation?

Posted by vanidosa27

What could be wrong?  It is actually my sister who is having this problem.  She works at a hand detail carwash and I told her that maybe she is having an allergic reaction to the chemicals she is using. 

Her hand is chapped and red all the way up her wrist and appears swollen.  It is only on one hand. 

Please let us know if you have any suggestions as to what this could be.

Can she wear long rubber gloves so the harsh detergents don't effect her skin? Dish washing can be bad enough on hands, let alone car washing. If it's swollen, she should definitely have it checked by a doctor.
