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.
And since there are no plant proteins in the nitrile, it's hard to believe this person has another allergy to something entirely different in the nitrile glove.

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.
