Latex is a milky bi product of the rubber tree, and when it is mixed with manufacturing chemicals, the resulting product (for example, rubber bands, balloons, or gloves) holds elastic properties.
Most people have no pronounced sensitivity to latex, but for those who do, allergic reactions vary from mild to life-threatening.
Advanced Allergy & Asthma specialists are expertly trained in latex allergy diagnosis. Those who are in close/prolonged contact with latex products may develop an allergy; however, those who have hay fever or food allergies may also be at risk. Contact us if you think you’re allergic to latex.
