Leather Gloves Lead to Flares
Dear NEA Scratch Pad:
I work my horses daily and have always used gloves for protection. However, I have found that wearing unlined leather gloves (which I always used previously) drives my hands crazy. The eczema problem FLARES really badly. The tanning process has a lot of chemicals, which I would assume is the problem. I have quit using leather totally. This has lessened the problem, but I still have some eczema in palm of my right hand.
I hope this helps someone who has a problem as I do with my hands.
