Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hello
Doctor :  
how can i help you?
User :   I recently started a new job as a dishwasher at a restaraunt... every night my hands have several small lacerations on them from using steel wool. I was wondering if you could reccomend a lotion or cream or something like that designed to help heal small cuts quickly.
Doctor :   i suggest you to use a glove while washing the utensils with a steel wool or else to use a scrubber rather than steel wool

User :   we use gloves, but they are very thin and break easily... unfortunately we have to use the certain type of thin glove due to health codes... the cuts are inevetable
Doctor :   it is against the occupational safety measures
Doctor :  
where you are not provided with adequate safety equipments
