Allergy to latex is often a very serious and even life-threatening condition. It may be relatively common amongst certain categories of workers such as Health Care Workers and groups of patients who are frequently exposed to latex in their ongoing disease management; for example Spina bifida patients.

An Immunotherapy vaccine exists and can be made available to Allergy Specialists.

If you believe you are allergic to latex, then contact your Primary Care Physician. They may refer you to an Allergy Specialist for a full investigation and specialised treatment, possibly with an Immunotherapy Vaccine against latex.
