I accidently touched formaldehyde some days ago. Skin on my hand got dehydrated as if I had placed it in salt solution. I washed it with water and it returned to normal state after 5 minutes.
But now whenever I wash my hands with water my skin gets dehydrated again, but returns to normal state after some time . What's the reason behind it getting dehydrated again when exposed to water ? Will it return to normal state when new skin grows back ?
By dehydration, I mean something like this.
