Health Tip: Are You Allergic to Latex?
Here are common symptoms

(HealthDay News) -- Latex is a rubbery sap produced by trees that is used in many products, from balloons to rubber gloves. Latex allergy is common, and symptoms vary.

The American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology mentions these possible symptoms:

  • Skin that appears red, scaly or itchy after touching latex.
  • A runny nose, sneezing, wheezing or coughing.
  • Itchy throat or watery, itchy eyes.
  • Anaphylaxis, a life-threatening reaction potentially characterized by difficulty breathing or swallowing, passing out, chest tightness or vomiting.
