There was a thread many months back, I'll see if I can find it again. Basically people got small tiny liquid pockets on their hands(me being one of them) it's usually an allergic reaction.
My hands are all fine now, I've had my boy for almost 8 months now and my hands are no longer as sensitive to his quills. However, elsewhere on my body is another story. I'll get little itchy bumps where his quills have poked me, usually on the inside of my arms and legs(when he's sleeping in my lap). The bumps go away once I ignore them for like an hour or so. Like silvercat, I just wash/wipe my skin with cool water and just ignore it.
