Unfortunately, some people experience skin irritations as a result of wearing medical gloves.  As part of Ansell’s commitment to developing premium quality gloves that provide optimal protection we have developed a specialised range of surgical and examination gloves that are suitable for people with sensitive hands, or that suffer from latex allergies or chemical sensitivities.

In this section, you will find information regarding the types of adverse skin reactions commonly experienced, advice on how to minimise the risks of developing an allergic reaction to medical gloves, suitable gloves for latex allergies and sensitivity sufferers, as well as information about what Ansell is doing to reduce the allergenicity of their medical gloves.
