Hiya! Couldn't you wear gloves so you're not coming in direct contact with it? X

Could it be that you have an allergy to the gloves? Have you tried vinyl gloves?

Have you tried a barrier cream aswell? (Assuming you're not allergic to the gloves) x

I am allergic to PPD (black dye).

I found that wearing vinyl or rubber gloves really aggrivated my dermatitis but the nitrile gloves were great.

Just make sure you keep them on during prep and keep them on until after everything is cleaned up.

I'm allergic to blue tint, when I've had a tint mixing blue into black I can't breathe, throat felt like it was swelling up! Pre mixed blue and black is ok though. Are you sure it's not the gloves your allergic to? Cotton gloves may be helpful, have to wash them a lot though x
