Is the government still using the Kimwipes I was exposed to many decades ago? Those were very rough and no doubt related to John Wayne toilet paper*.

Totally feel you on the gloves. I can't wear vinyl gloves; they make my hands itch like mad. And unfortunately, those are the default stock at a lot of places I've worked since they're the cheapest. Fortunately the nitrile gloves work for me and are fairly readily available. When I worked at the big hospital I always had to stick a few pairs in my pocket whenever I had to leave my department and go up to the floor. My current workplace has them pretty much everywhere, which is nice.

The vinyl gloves we use make my hands itch like mad and swell slightly if worn long enough (not Staypuft-caliber, but noticeable to me in that it's not easy to get the gloves off).

We can only have nitrile gloves if we have documented an allergy with HR...I'd think that a skin rash/localized swelling would count as an allergy, or do we need to go into full-blown anaphylaxis to prove it?

Funny, my experience seems to be opposite of the folks above.
We have always had nitrile gloves available (for cleaning the gas pumps and stuff), and recently they added vinyl as an option. And while wearing the vinyl isn't pleasant, the difference is enough to confirm my suspicion that I'm allergic to nitrile.
(It is a very mild reaction: I simply sweat profusely where the nitrile touches my skin. Less so with vinyl.)
