Hi, I have read interesting article in newspapers yesterday about allergy on latex. I am using latex gloves very frequently when I work in my house, in the garden around my car. I have noticed red irritation on my hands several times but I thought it was some light skin injury which I get while I was working. I would like to know is latex allergy possible?

Hi, I would like to tell you that answer on your question are positive. Latex is causing allergy and there are to types of allergy which latex may cause. The first one is contact dermatitis with swelling and redness which would pass couple of days after contact and the other is potentially life threaten because he cause urticaria, nausea and anaphylaxis.
Proteins in latex are responsible for allergic response.
