Recommendations for gloves?

I primarily pick my scalp, and often I'm not aware of it until I'm mostly through removing an existing scab. I'm looking for a thin glove that I can wear around the house and when at the computer working (as work stress is a primary trigger for me). Ideally I could use a touch screen, but I'd settle for just wearable for a long period of time at a keyboard.

I've been googling, but haven't found good recommendations yet specifically for reducing picking of scalp or other parts of body. If I find any, I'll post here!

if you’re from the uk boots sell nice material ones:). they are machine washable and first aid gloves so they are nice and thin

Thanks for the recommendation! I ended up trying these - they have been lightweight enough for the spring, we'll see how it goes as the temperatures warm up. There is a silver tip on one finger.

Hi! Do you pick everyday? I do it since I was like 15.. and I am 30 now.  Did you find any solution apart from gloves? You or anybody with this problem can text me on email and we can support each other and share ideas or solutions. 

All the best!
