Saturday morning at work I accidently threw on a pair of powdered medical gloves rather than the powder-free. Within minutes I started breaking out in hives. It's now Monday and the rash is no better, if not worse. There is no pain....just itches like crazy. I must've scratched and scratched and scratched last night because I woke up with blood on the sheets and my hands covered in blood. ICK. I've been using herbacin lotion on them, but it's not helping. My MIL seems to think I need an antihistamine. Any ideas? I soaked them in oatmeal...didn't help. I soaked them in cornstarch water....didn't help.
