Do you know of any gowns that don't contain carba mix and thiruam mix in their gowns? Especially in the cuff. Thanks.

I feel like I'm following in your footsteps. I've had a history of eczema since I was 3 yrs old. I've been a surgical tech for over 25 yrs. I've maaged my skin issues fairly well through the yrs but in the last year or 2 I feel like my eczema has gotten out of control. I merely mentioned that I'd like to try a different brand of gloves to my manager. She said, "sure" and sent me to Employee Health just to document the problem. We'll, much to both of our surprises, I was told I could not return to work until my hands were clear.....Are you kidding me? I've been working with weeping eczema for at least a year. Anyway, I'm now forced to be on workers comp until I see a dermatologist and an allergist. I agree that I need to see them, but it looks like at this point I may not be working for 6 to 8 weeks. I want to go back to work. I NEED to go back to work, for my sanity and my checkbook...frustrated!!!
