Powder-free exam gloves are a popular choice among caregivers when it comes to managing incontinence. There are several tasks involved in incontinent care where the transmission of bacteria could be quite harmful, including diaper changes, applying ointments and bathing. For these tasks, powder-free gloves are an excellent option because they provide a high level of dexterity, which is important when working with sensitive skin or delicate areas of the body.
Powder-free disposable gloves have some key advantages over their powdered counterparts. While powder can make exam gloves a little easier to put on and take off, you should have no problem with powder-free vinyl exam gloves as long as your hands are dry when putting them on. Some powder-free gloves even include an alternative (such as freeze-dried aloe) in the lining to make them easy to put on. Powder-free gloves also don't leave that powdery residue that can make skin dry and irritated.
