Gloves for People with Latex Allergies

Tuesday, 24 April 2018  |  Admin

Latex allergies became increasingly common in the 1980s and 1990s, and today approximately one percent of the UK population is said to be suffering from a latex allergy or intolerance. While symptoms of Type IV latex allergy include itchy rashes, Type I is associated with swelling, difficulty breathing, asthma, nausea and other symptoms that can potentially be even life threatening.
