Understanding Latex Allergies

A latex allergy is a type of allergy that happens when your immune system reacts badly to some of the proteins in rubber latex. This allergy is common among people who work in hospitality, health care, or other industries that involve frequent contact with latex. People with spina bifida may also be more likely to have a latex allergy. To learn more about latex allergies, watch this video from the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology.
