    Do you need medical gloves for bowel program?/other

    was wondering of you neede medical gloves or if the not for medical use gloves mattered for doing your bowel program?

    I have had 2 accidents in the last week, I have been cooking with a smoker and the pork I made was great but it was the only change I can think of, the gloves are not for medical use but I did not think this mattered, was wondering if anyone has any feedback on this.

    I have been using my stander more but I did not think this would change this up like this.
    I am existing right now, I would give anything to live again.

    been using the "not for medical use gloves " for 30 years, never liked the rubber kinda, always used some kind of co-polymer, ones i bought a couple years ago was for janitorial/food service type, something like 1000 gloves for 5 bucks

    Hi,
    HI,
    I dont see any reason that gloves have to be medical. Often, people use those because they come in hypoallergenic types, which some people need. I would definitely recommend disposable gloves however to prevent transmission of any bacteria, which are very common in stool.

    yeah, some kind of glove would be a must. ew, the thought of not using gloves. a diaper genie or litter locker is nice to put the nasty gloves in to prevent smelling up the place. they wouldnt need to be steril, like cathing gloves need to be. at least mine are all steril.

    I would be hesitant to use the type of rubber gloves my wife has for washing dishes. They have these sure-grip ridges at the finger tips that would be a bit abrasive to say the least.

    rectal mucosa may be more prone to latex allergy so vinyl may be a safe choice

    also safer for employees, if you're inclined to think about such matters

    i put the cause of the accidents to the pork , a real sugary sauce o bbq sauce can give some spectacular effects to ab,s.
    doesnt mean it is not good, just could be very rich and fatty, which can taste very good.

    You don't need to use sterile gloves to do your bowel program at home. And the pork could be the problem....

    When I used to do a bowel program, before I got a total colectomy, I used those vinyl gloves you see in medical supply shops. I mainly did this for cleanliness, not for medical reasons.
