Items with Latex

The most obvious source of latex is in exam gloves worn by doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals, although there are many items that contain this substance and may lead to an allergic reaction. These include:

  • Syringes
  • Stethoscopes
  • Blood pressure cuffs
  • Respirators
  • Surgical masks
  • Tubing
  • Tapes
  • Bandages

Symptoms of allergies can include skin rashes or hives, coughing, sneezing, itchy eyes, and in some extreme cases, anaphylaxis. Anyone that disregards warnings, mistakes your information for another’s, or fails to acknowledge your allergies may be responsible for subsequent suffering.
