I have the same problem. I yanked a load of P/I last week. Forgot to were long sleaves and pants and I'm paying for it now. Anyway, I have a pair of gloves I don't want to get rid of. I'm going to try and wash them in a bucket of hot water and liquid detergent. You need something to break down the oil from the gloves. If you are highly alergic I would recommend pitching the gloves and buying a cheaper pair just for p/i removal. Do not wash the gloves with other clothing or towel ect. as those items could pick up the oil as well.
