The use of efficacy of nitrile gloves by PRP patients is well documented within the PRP community. Of course, the information is scattered hither and yon. The purpose of this page is to gather feedback from PRP patients and caregivers for newcomers.
What are nitrile gloves?
“Nitrile is latex free. I wore nitrile gloves for three years, day and night. I never had any problems. I would take them off when I showered and applied the body cream. If I had not worn them, my hands would have been useless. Sometimes when you are just sitting, you take the gloves off or a bit, But it did not take long for that thick layer of keratin to harden.”
Jan T (Ringwood, NJ) notes:
“I was so happy to find out about nitrile gloves. I use them constantly and without them, my hands are practically useless. My chemistry major daughter wore them in chem lab all through college and does have one warning: they are not impervious to some strong chemicals and solvents, so for housecleaning or in the garage, you might want to put heavy duty latex gloves over them”.
