    Hi there,

    I took a job a few months ago as a potwash but left after a week because I didnt like the hours and one of the bosses. I was working with all sorts of chemicals but after about a week I noticed 3 fingers in particular were getting itchier and itchier. 6 months later in the summer, they get so dry and peel off and I've tried everything but there is no cure! What is causing this and how can I stop it?????

    There is a cure. Time. It will take time to heal, in the mean time don't wash any other pots and use hand friendly washing up.
