I’ve been baking for years but recently I’ve started getting red, itchy skin over my palms and around my fingers whenever I bake with certain types of yeast. Has anyone else ever had this? I’m wondering if it’s an allergic reaction or maybe something more common as it’s only some brands.
I don’t want to touch the ingredients with my hands in bad condition of course, and some of my friends have recommended trying out powder-free disposable gloves like these since they won’t contaminate the food like moisturiser would and I can just toss them out after I use a pair.
Does anyone have any tips for dealing with something like this? Are gloves a good idea or should I try to sort the issue first?
