Hmm ... I hope I'm not acquiring a latex allergy. I've got little blistery-type spots on the backs of my hands, and I didn't realise till today that I'd not had any while I was working at home for 3 months. But now when I've been back in the lab for 3 weeks and wearing latex gloves again I've got these little spots back. Hopefully it's just coincidence coz latex allergies are sensitising allergies generally which means it can only get worse :( On one of my summer jobs at uni my boss had a bad latex allergy and we weren't even allowed to bring rubberbands into the lab in case she accidentally touched one :S

It might all be coincidence though. And there're non-latex gloves available that I can wear if I need to.
