I was leaning towards the latex gloves like those at the hospital. When I had the problem with my finger a few years ago the Nurse and PT gave me a bunch of blue latex gloves. Those were a little heavier than the ones I was used to when I worked ambulance. Roger
Harbor Freight has latex gloves in 3 or 4 different thicknesses. The 7 mil ones are comparable to the heaviest I've run into in the medical field and hold up fairly well. They're probably the lightest I would use and they also carry a heavier 9 mil glove. With the 20% coupons, the price is pretty reasonable.
