Allergy, Rubber

Allergic reaction to products containing processed Natural Rubber Latex such as Rubber gloves, Condoms, Catheters, dental dams, balloons, and sporting equipment. Both T-Cell mediated (Hypersensitivity, Delayed) and IgE antibody-mediated (Hypersensitivity, Immediate) allergic responses are possible. Delayed Hypersensitivity results from exposure to Antioxidants present in the Rubber; Immediate Hypersensitivity results from exposure to a Latex protein.
