Latex Sensitivity and Allergy
Latex exposure can produce several reactions. Latex-related allergies may be:
- Immediate: Response to contact with latex proteins results in immediate hypersensitivity. Symptoms occur between 5 and 30 minutes after exposure and reactions may include skin redness or wheezing. Usually these reactions disappear within 2 hours of removal of allergen.
- Late: Late hypersensitivity or allergic contact dermatitis is a response to chemicals used in the manufacturing process of synthetic latex and natural rubber latex. An acute rash occurs after 6 to 48 hours and once the person has become sensitized to an allergen, the slightest contact may cause recurrence.
