Gloves come in several sizes, buy something comfortable for you.

(c) Rod Brouhard
Exam gloves are non-sterile gloves used for general purpose first aid. Gloves are part of universal precautions and are one example of personal protective equipment.

Exam gloves provide clean fingers for the victim's benefit and provide a barrier for the rescuer's benefit. Exam gloves come in several sizes, so it's a good idea to buy a box and stock your first aid with your own size.
