It burns!!!

i was working on my car today changing the fuel pump and when i disconnected the lines a bit of gas ran down my arm, no big deal i thought as i kept on working then a few seconds later it felt like my arm was on fire! I've gotten gas on my skin countless times before with no ill effects but this time it felt like someone poured battery acid down my sleeve. theres no rash or anything but my skin still stings abit from it. Anyone else ever experienced anything like this? I guess I'm going to have to be alot more careful about what gets on my skin from now on, its got me baffled because I've never felt anything like this before from gas I think I'm gonna jump in the shower and see if it feels any better
on the upside, my new fuel pump works

Yes.

I have nerve damage on my hands ! arms legs & feet & I keep from getting "solvents" on me.

Ex:
get some paint on my hand or arm
1st try not to.
2nd wash it right away with GO JO
3rd paint thinner to wash it off later will result in my arms burning for a day or two.

Very uncomfortable.

It always burned when you poured petroleum based solvents on yourself, you just didn't notice it..

Noticing things like that means that you are getting old.....Yes.....OLD

Soon your youth will all be gone. the years will fly by like minutes, and where you put all those nasty slovents, you'll have an incurable skin condition.,

You should probably just go dig a hole, then stand next to it....it won't be long before you just keel over and fall in.



Hope that bit of uplifting P2P hotrod guy counseling helps,
Mikey

The skin on the inside of your arm is much more sensitive than your hands etc..................probably just never spilled it there before. Try pouring some on your crotch sometime..............................

There you go, advocating self inflicted pain as a recreational activity again...

If using petroleum based solvents on those tender "personal" areas bothers you, try Jalapeno juice, it's natural and leaves no lasting effects.

After you apply the jalapeno juice, you will be laughing so hard your eyes will be watering, be sure to get a little into your eyes as you are rubbing them.

Chances are you don't have any jalapeņo juice around {remember you are old?}

just use the Ben gay same effect or the gay bend I am sure it will be painful or it should
