I didn't know which forum this belongs exactly, but I'm sure someone here knows about this.

Anyway, I have been doing some work with fiberglass at work lately. The parts hare already cured by the time I get to them, I just cut and trim them to fit the aircraft. After doing this, I get really itchy. I want to know if anyone knows how to stop the itch. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

oo fiber glass slivers, those things are shitty, try taking some packing tape and putting it over your skin, and maybe it'll pull some of them out?

yes definalty cold showers .. hot ones make it worse and last longer.. cold ones keep ure pores shut and washes away the glass better

i use to do blown fiberglass in the summer and the best thing i have found is take a really hot shower for about 5 mins then switch over to cold and finish it out..works like a champ

and to 97 slownoma i don't care what you do, if your really doing work it will get on your skin even just at clean up or just rub against it will make it itch

if none of that works, in all seriousness rub your arms with sandpaper, whenever i get metal splinters at work it takes them right out

honestly comparing metal splinters to fiberglass is like comparing taking a shit and pissing. yes its in the same area but 2 different things going on. cold shower and some cream to stop the itching

yup......but if you scratched it then you will pretty much be screwed.....
wear long sleaves and a bandana.....you don't wanna be wiping your sweaty forehead....

nowadays the only place that bothers me is down low between the fingers....that'll drive me nuts
