When you apply Liquid Gloves before you put on gloves, you are preventing this bacteria growth.

Q: I USED LIQUID GLOVES AND I’M EXPERIENCING DISCOMFORT, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

A: This is highly unlikely and we’ve experience very few cases like this over the 20 years the product has existed.  Initial discomfort may be be experienced sometimes but this is usually because the skin has been extremely damaged over years of abuse.  This might also be a sign that the person in question should seek medical advise because they might have some type of underlying skin condition. If you experience discomfort though,  wash your hands thoroughly and give a few minutes time.  If further discomfort should persist please consult a physisian.
