Has a doc confirmed these two allergies? Or is this student either saying this or demonstrating a rash after wearing both? Some people get a rash just by wearing something that keeps their sweat on their skin.

Re: Latex and Nitrile Glove Allergies
We currently have a student going through our chemistry program that has 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.
