how can i tell if i am allergic to latex?

buy a box of latex gloves and put one glove on one hand aleave it on, for a minute or two and then take it off

wear some, and you'll find out.

rub it all over you and if you get a rash ur allergic :D

If you get red weals and itchiness on wearing latex, you're probably allergic. there are alternatives, but i can;t remember them of the top of my head.

Mishill Obama
put it on and see what happens

if it falls off and itches like crazy, you probably are

little t dawg
put a condom on and if your little friend has some issues afterward then you probably are and should see a doctor

Eat latex. If you die, good. Hope you are allergic. =)

take it and see what happens

get latex like balloons and rub it on your arm or something if it gets red and swelling then yeah

You would get a rash where the latex came into contact with your body. You may also have breathing problems.

If you have a reaction to latex then OBVIOUSLY you are allergic. It doesnt take the head cashier at wal mart to figure this one out.

You are if you get a rash from latex gloves

I never ever got a rash from latex gloves, but when my dentist used them in my mouth, I got a rash on my lips where ever his hands touched. That's how I found out.

People who are allergic to latex often have a reaction after being in contact with the latex in rubber gloves. Three types of reactions can occur with latex gloves:

* Irritant contact dermatitis.

This common reaction to protective gloves isn't an actual allergy. It's most likely due to sweating or rubbing under the gloves or from detergents left on your hands before wearing them. This rash occurs most often in people who wear protective gloves, such as dental and health care workers. Irritant contact dermatitis usually makes your skin appear red, dry and cracked.

* Allergic contact dermatitis.

This is a reaction to the latex or chemical additives used during the manufacturing process. The chemicals added to latex can cause a skin rash 24 to 48 hours after contact. The rash usually starts on the parts of your skin that have come in contact with latex, and then may spread to other areas. You may also have oozing blisters.

* Hypersensitivity immune system response.

This response is an actual latex allergy. It occurs when your immune system reacts to proteins found in natural rubber latex. In a latex allergy, exposure to latex may cause immediate reactions, such as itching, redness, swelling, sneezing and wheezing.

Exposure to airborne latex particles, often sent into the air when removing latex gloves, can cause signs and symptoms similar to those of hay fever or asthma:

* Stuffy nose
* Cough
* Hives or rash
* Itchy and watery eyes
* Difficulty breathing

Anaphylactic shock symptoms
The most serious allergic reaction to latex is an anaphylactic response, which can be deadly. Anaphylactic reactions develop immediately after latex exposure in highly sensitive people and cause the airways (bronchi) to constrict, making it difficult to breathe. Blood pressure may drop to life-threatening levels, making you feel dizzy or causing you to lose consciousness. Other serious signs and symptoms include:

* Wheezing
* Confusion
* Slurred speech
* Rapid or weak pulse
* Blueness of your skin, including your lips and nail beds
* Diarrhea
* Nausea and vomiting

Seek emergency medical care if you think you're having an anaphylactic reaction.

Hope this helps,

Dr. Moses

Well, I found out I was allergic to latex by wearing those rubber latex gloves. My hands started breaking out in a rash. Another test is by using latex band aids and see what happens. Hope this helps!
