Thesesulfur based chemical accelerators cause the majority of skin dermatitis reactions. Management: 1. Usage of LOW DERMATITIS POTENTIAL gloves. It is FDA approved gloves that have been tested, and are1)proven free of chemical accelerator residue 2)will not induce skin irritation, and3)will not cause any potential sensitization reaction. 2.
