Brief Answer:
Applying coconut oil will help.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
Contact with amyl nitrate can cause a rash, skin irritation and dryness. It can be associated with dizziness and watery eyes. You need to apply some coconut oil or aloe vera gel to make the area less irritable. This is usually not worrisome and is likely to subside in next 2-3 days
Hope this answer is helpful.
Any further queries are welcome.
