Latex Alllergy

Were you looking for information on Latex Allergy? Latex alllergy is a common misspelling of latex allergy.
 
A latex allergy is caused by natural rubber latex manufactured from a milky fluid derived from the rubber tree. It does not apply to synthetic rubber often referred to as "latex." Symptoms may include skin rash, hives, flushing, and itching. Healthcare workers are at special risk of developing a latex allergy because they use latex gloves often. Certain medications may reduce the allergic symptoms; however, completely avoiding latex, though difficult, is the most effective treatment.
