Always use your work gloves
I found out the hard way, again, that you cannot harvest prickly pears without work gloves, even if you are using tongs to pick them from the cactus! Also, it is advisable to wear long sleeves and long pants, because even if you don't touch any of the plant, you will get the little prickly things ALL OVER YOU! Don't do it.
