I am prone to occasional bouts of eczema on my hands. I'm allergic to latex and thus can't use latex gloves (which I don't think are used in professional kitchens anyway), and sometimes when I cut certain produce, my hands start to itch & burn (and eventually crack & bleed). Does anyone else have this problem or know anyone who does? How do food professionals with eczema remedy this problem when they're exposing their hands at least 12 hours a day? I'm thinking cotton gloves under plastic gloves, but would not letting my skin breathe still exacerbate this condition? I'd really appreciate your input. Thanks.
