We use latex gloves at work and my nails get damaged. How can I strengthen them?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Biotin

Does not sound like a latex allergy.
So i would recommend using hand moisturizer at work - there are some specifically made for glove wearers. Also taking biotin daily like in a hair, skin and nail formula vitamin from a health food store can help too!

In brief: You can

You can take biotin and choline stabilized orthosilic acid.
You can moisturize your nails with eucerin smooth essentials lotion several times a day.
