Latex Allergy

Latex Allergy

Healthcare workers routinely use latex products in their everyday work. For example, they may use latex gloves to prevent the transmission of many infectious diseases. Unfortunately, for some workers, exposure to latex may result in allergic reactions. Eight to 12 percent of healthcare workers are latex-sensitive. It is important to note that alternative types of latex products, including gloves, are available due to the potential to develop a latex allergy. Detecting latex reaction symptoms early and reducing exposure to latex are important to prevent long-term health effects. This course will provide you with critical information about latex exposure and types of reactions.
