Call around: If you cannot find them at a large chain pharmacy, try one of the smaller family owned pharmacies as their owners are often more willing to "go the distance." amazon.Com has several brands of latex free, often called "nitrile" exam gloves, usually in boxes of 100 and in sizes from small to x-large for under 11 dollars a box.
