Latex Allergy

If you know that you are already allergic to natural rubber latex, then there is a good chance that you will be allergic to foods that also contain latex such as such as avocados, bananas, kiwis, eggplant, passion fruit, mangos, papayas..

Allergic reactions can include itching, burning, and/or swelling of the lips, tongue, mouth, and throat. Severe allergic reactions are also possible including anaphylaxis where your airways can become so inflamed that they constrict. Either way, if you suffer from latex related allergies you’ll want to stay away from these foods.

Also I've heard of people who can tolerate these foods individually, but when they combine fruits like a Mango/Banana smoothie or Papaya/Banana smoothie, they have allergic reactions.

Same here...and Neosporin FEEDS an infection in me. Watch how you react around balloons and rubberbands.

Strangely enough, I have no reaction to foods, but I always carry Benadryl just in case.

Mine started with just Bandaids and Neosporin, and then it grew to a full blown latex allergy--discovered when my throat closed when my child was playing with it in a car.

How do you know if you are reacting to the adhesive? When I take band aids off I have a raised red welt in the shape of the bandage for a couple days. Nothing where the pad is, just where the tape is. Is that what you are talking about?

For the ointment allergy - try to find an antibiotic cream instead. I am allergic to all ointments, as it is something in the ointment base that causes my skin to swell.

I have adhesive sensitivity too. I've done the gauze and wrap, the ace bandage stuff, and I've tried NuSkin too. None work as well as a good old bandaid, so I alternate as needed. Luckily, I heal very quickly!
