Cardinal Health Operating Room Customer Testimonial

How has the skin irritation on your hands impacted your ability to take care of your patients and live your day-to-day life as usual?

The irritation included itching and burning, and on one occasion I had small cracks in my skin. I had to wear gloves even more than usual during work to prevent exposure to compromised skin. I even wore gloves during activities at home that involved water or any detergents.
