I worked in a care home for 3 weeks where we were not allowed to use clean gloves for each resident. Since then my scalp has been itchy & black bits?

Report this: I'm not sure how this is regulated in the national health service but it should, in my opinion, be reported. Universal precautions are a non-negotiable protection every person in health care should demand. You may need to see your gp first but a consultant in dermatology might be necessary.
