Here is a link to Northwestern University glove handout that has some
great information. If you have not already tried, try some of the
accelerator free gloves.

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.

an allergy to latex and nitrile gloves. Does anyone know of a suitable
alternative they would recommend? I have found several alternatives, but
I know virtually nothing about the gloves themselves.
