I'm Dr Chaithanya, General Physician trying to help you today.

Hi, the peeling of skin over hands can happen due to various reasons like chemical burns or few diseases etc.

Can you give me the detailed history what did you touch, when did it start, from how long long you are having this? and did you take some treatment for it now?

Expert:  Dr Chaithanya replied 1 year ago.

Silicone allergy happens in few people, but peeling until it bleeds is a rare reaction.

I would have suggested antihistaminics or hydrocortisone if it was minor, but as your symptoms are severe and unusual, I advise you to go to Emergency, so the situation can be handled better in Emergency.

Hope I helped with required information.

Request you to leave positive feedback [hopefully excellent], only then, I'm compensated for my time.

Thank you.
