The Las Vegas gunman was allergic to certain chemicals and medications and often wore gardening gloves around so he wouldnt get rashes, his brother said Wednesday.
It also emerged Wednesday that Paddock was prescribed 50 10-milligram tablets of diazepam commonly called Valium on June 21 by Dr. Steven Winkler, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

With a public trial over a controversial sleeping pill less than two weeks away, the pill's manufacturer settled a $21 million lawsuit out of court on the condition that reams of documents about the pill be sealed.
U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Greene Monday ordered all documents on the sleeping pill Halcion - including a document about alleged murders and suicides committed by people using the drug - be sealed in the wake of a settlement Friday between the pill's manufacturer and the woman suing the company.The terms of the settlement - including the amount of money paid to a Hurricane woman who killed her mother while on the drug - are also confidential.
Ilo Marie Grundberg pumped eight bullets into her 82-year-old mother in June 1988. A circuit judge dismissed murder charges against Grundberg after Grundberg's attorney convinced him she was intoxicated by the sleeping pill, Halcion, at the time of the killing.
Grundberg promptly filed a suit against the Upjohn Company, the manufacturer of Halcion, claiming her use of the drug sparked the "homicidal compulsion" that led her to kill her mother.
I saw the gloves in the body shot. Was wondering why.
I wonder what other psych drugs Paddock was taking. Someone yesterday said he was on Prozac, but I haven't seen any confirmation of that.
a skin allergy could explain the moaning and screaming in bed.
Very convenient for no fingerprint evidence. The mystery only grows...
Wonder how Americans in the 1800s survived without chemical medications that are killing us today.
That’s what I’m thinking too
Maybe he had an “allergy” to bomb making materials.
Guns get hot when fired rapidly. Wearing gloves would not be unusual.
I am aware of that. I am not promoting any conspiracy theory. Just noting that it’s convenient to those conspiracy theories that there will be a lack of prints.
“Dr”. Lee’s (unrequested) Opinion: The subject may simply have been a Hypochondriac with intermittent insomnia, paranoia and OCD affectations. Paranoia was made worse by his increasing megalomania and a “God” complex.
The subject is likely to have rejected any talk or discussion therapy, due to his general distrust of other people, and his preference of self administered medications. Medications often tended to produce unpredictable and undesired effects because the subject took them with alcohol or other recreational drugs.
I lived in California two or three decades ago.
I used to wear white military-style honor guard type gloves when I read The Los Angeles Times. If I didn’t, I would get a rash on my hands, sort of like poison ivy.
Eventually, The LA Times switched to a soy-based ink of some kind, and the problem went away. Maybe I was just allergic to left-wing rags...LOL!
I had the same problem with Christmas wrapping paper for years.
Eventually, I stopped having the problem.....it just didn’t bother me anymore.
This is a narrative to divert motive. Valium would calm him for his murders, Do not let them avoid revealing the motive. There is strong indication of isis or hatred of conservatives. They are trying the Russian ploy to claim mental illness. That is a given for any murder but why did he plan this for the better party og a year. Who helped him? where did he get the explosives used by terrorism in NYC. This is a red herring. They know and the are not telling us to keep us from reprisals.
What screaming and moaning? Did I miss something?
It's more likely he used the drugs to sedate Marilou when she was in the way.
Was just talking about this tonight. I reasoned that it might’ve indicate he planned on getting away, not leaving prints.
So then why suicide at the end. I reasoned the cops were there at the door and he had no way out.
But hot gun and gloves or bizarre allergies is another twist.
10 mg is a significant dose. I remember how just 2mg in the ER made me babble.
They didn't. The average lifespan on an American in the 1800s was 38 years.
They didn't. Take a stroll through any of the older cemeteries or church yards and do some simple subtraction in your head. If a man or woman saw 65 he was OLD!
Now, we're just getting going. Then, every day was a gift. And, it wasn't the years, so much as the mileage. Look at pics of men in their 60's back in the 1800s. It's why, back in the 30's, the Feds thought 65 was a nice number to set as retirement age. They expected only 15% or 20% to make it that far.
