Wearing cotton gloves inside the barrier gloves may work. Possible
drawbacks are that the commonly available cotton gloves do not extend as
far as the usual barrier gloves. In addition, depending on the allergy,
sweat may cause allergens from the surface of the barrier gloves to
mobilize to the skin.
