The most common source of skin exposure to epoxy resin are uncured epoxy glues.
Check product labels and use only ingredient labeled products that do not list this chemical or its synonyms.

Avoid breathing fumes and touching uncured epoxy glues.

Let your dentist know of the allergy because dentists sometimes use epoxy resins.

It may take 2 to 3 weeks of avoiding exposure before improvement of your eruption begins.

Wear nitrile gloves not rubber if handling epoxies resin because the epoxy can penetrate the rubber glove.
