It's not clear how you want to analogize these two properties. Enthalpy burns your hand if you stick it into a pan of hot water. Who knows what entropy does.

Enthalpy h = u+pv, can you please explain burning of hand in terms of h = u, pv .... what are the changes in these terms

All I know is enthalpy = heat content of a substance. Entropy is more theoretical and variously described as a measure of disorder in a system.
