Husband developed rash on hands one week after grabbing an underwater plant in the caney fork river in Tennessee. He immediately had neddle like spines in his hand. He tried to pick them out and we went on about our business. One week later , he developed a rash on his hands that seems to begin with little red dots which then progress to flaking and peeling skin. It has made his hands painfully sore. Went to a skin doctor, gave him some cream, but it has not made it go away. It seems to have gotten worse. My profile picture is an up close picture of his hand. Has anyone seen anything like this before???? Desperately seeking any input.
