I've never had something like this happen, it feels like both my hands were dipped in acid or something.
I'm a groomer, I washed a dog with shampoo that I have been using for years and never had a reaction to.
Went inside and put some lotion on, I've used this lotion before, it's pretty mild, again never had a reaction before.

A minute later my ring finger started to burn so I took my ring of and rinsed my finger in cold water, all the sudden my whole left hand was on fire.
So I used a bunch of soap and washed my hands really well in cold water, now they both are burning!
It's been at least half an hour and they have died down a bit, but not much.

I've tried burn relief cream, gold bond (which helped a tiny bit), and baking soda, which also helped at first.

I have to go back to work now, and it feels like someone lit them on fire!
Anyone ever heard of this or have any ideas what I can do??

I know that a person can develop an allergy to things. For instance, a person may have been stung 10 times by a bee and been fine, and then the 11th time they reaction violently to it. That may be what is happening to you. Try a different shampoo and see if you are fine with that.

Take a benadryl to cut the allergic effect. I had something very similar happen to me with my dog's shampoo recently.
