Latex Alergy

Were you looking for information about Latex Allergy? Latex alergy is a common misspelling of latex allergy.
 
Latex allergy is not an allergic reaction to synthetic rubber, but rather the product manufactured from a milky fluid derived from the rubber tree. Proteins in real latex rubber can cause symptoms such as skin rash, itching, and hives when inhaled or exposed to skin. Healthcare workers, hairdressers, and other workers with regular glove use are at risk for developing latex allergy. Although medications are available to reduce the symptoms of latex allergy, the best approach is to avoid latex completely.
