The soap at my work makes my hands bust out in some sort of horrible painful rash that goes up my arms. I asked if I could use hand sanitizer and got no response (my boss gave me this smug kind of look and said that it was 'just Dawn dish soap' and then left). I thought it would be better to ask first, as I work in concessions (sometimes) at a theater and some people think that hand sanitizer isn't as good, blah blah blah.

What would you do in this situation? I wash my hands more than anyone else there that I've seen, because, I don't know, it's gross not to. Should I use hand sanitizer anyways? Should I bring some soap from home? Should I suck it up and keep using the soap here? It hurts really fucking bad, and got red and painful six hours later when I got in the shower, and they were still red and blotchy when I got up this morning. It's since gone away almost completely. I know it's the soap because it happens right after I wash my hands. I put lotion on after I wash my hands because I have a tendency to dry out and crack, but it burns before I put the lotion on.

Do any of you have a sensitivity to soap? Am I just being a wuss?


When I eat Junior Mints I have to squish them to make sure they're not hard. Do you have any weird eating rituals?

Edit: I shouldn't go in to pet stores because seeing the animals there makes me want to cry because I want to take them all home. :( Do you get sad, too?
