Latex Allergy Center

Latex allergies are a reaction to the material used in many rubber products. Healthcare workers are among those most susceptible to the allergy, which is triggered by exposure to the latex gloves and instruments that they use at work. Children with spina bifida also have high incidences of the reaction. When high levels of latex are present, asthma symptoms can be triggered.
