Conditions Triggered by Careers
Many individuals suffer from latex allergies and are completely unaware of it. Studies have shown that the most common cases of individuals with latex-allergies are people who frequently come into contact with latex material. (Example: The largest number of the latex-sensitive population are in the field of nursing, this is in part due to the frequent latex glove wear.) As the intense exposure to latex becomes more frequent, individuals become more sensitive to the point where the slightest trigger (such as contact with the elastic on a bra or a brief) can cause an intense reaction.
Mind your surroundings and try to isolate the cause of your latex allergy, avoidance is the best solution.
healthcare workers in the US should request their employers to only use latex-free gloves.
