When I work on junipers, pines and spruces I notice the next day my hands will have small red bumps all over them. They don’t necessarily hurt they just sting/itch a little. They usually go away within a week. I’m curious if anyone else experiences this? Does everyone experience this or only a selective number of people? Do I have some unknown to me allergy to the trees/needles?
I tried wearing gloves while working on the trees but I find it extremely difficult to work on the small detail stuff with gloves on. Any suggestions on how to prevent the skin irritation or any after care suggestions?
