(HealthDay News) -- Latex may be found in products such as balloons, dishwashing gloves, waistbands, rubber toys, pacifiers, rubber bands and tape.
The American Academy of Family Physicians suggests how to manage a latex allergy:
- Avoid direct contact with latex.
- If you work in patient care, make sure everyone around you wears non-latex gloves.
- Always wear a medical alert device so emergency technicians are aware of your allergy.
- Discuss with your doctor carrying an epinephrine pen.
