I was cleaning the stove a few days ago and now I'm starting to get my eyes burning and 2 wrinkles under my eyes (IM ONLY 14). And yesterday I woke up with bumps on my arms (small, mesquito bite-types).

What happened, was it the chemicals from the stove cleaning?

I am not a doctor but I play one on TV.. take 2 motrin and call your doctor in the morning. Sounds like an allergy.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

Some stove cleaners,especially Oven Cleaners are pretty Caustic,and if inhaled, can attack your immune system.
It has happened to me. Sounds like an allergic reaction,which will pass normally, after a couple of days.
If in doubt,see your Doctor. :thumbsup:

As everyone else has said it sounds like an Allergic Reaction, I've had similar small bumps like that pretty much all over me within a few days (This happened about 3 years ago, I was about a year older than you), had them for about a 3 weeks to a month it took a course of some strong anti-biotics for a week to get rid of it, the odd thing is I never found out what the exact thing I was allergic to, very odd allergic reactions just a small change to anything and your immune system might react to it.

As has been suggested see how it goes over a couple of days should probably subside after that but if not obviously get yourself to your local GP.

As a suggestion always wash your hands after using any Chemical Cleaners, that would probably be the reason for your eyes burning, normally says on the warning section to try not to get it near your eyes or mouth and some will say not to get it near your skin, might be a good idea to read the information on the stove cleaner chemical thing you used as well.

Antibiotics for an allergy? That doesn't sound right to me. Antihistamines I could understand but not antibiotics.

Anyway, when using stove cleaners, the room should always be well-ventilated. Also should wear gloves etc. Many stove cleaners contain lye AKA sodium hydroxide. It's very caustic. Some may bleach your clothing too. I'll never forget a beautiful corduroy green jumper I had that got a yellow "bleached" spot as a consequence of cleaning the oven.

This may sound a bit crazy, but take a tub bath with some vinegar, about a cup or two, in the water. It certainly won't hurt and it might help.

It wasn't for the allergy itself, as I said I never found the cause for it and have never been affected since as far as I know the only thing I am allergic to now is Pollen i.e. Hayfever, the Antibiotics were to get rid of the small bumps that weren't subsiding and as I said it worked after a week and the bumps had subsided, the Doctor had took a urine sample and didn't know what was up when that was analysed so prescribed me the Antibiotics.
