I was just wondering if anyone has any specific cleaning products they use that don't wreak havoc on their hands!?! I feel like no matter what I use, even just vinegar water and dish soap irritates my hands and arms. Wearing gloves doesn't help! I have a reaction to them too! (Rubber and laytex)

I do not have anywhere else on my body. I cover my ears with my hair but when I have a bad flare up, it looks like I have dandruff.
