Latex allergy can present a wide range of symptoms, including:
hives (contact urticaria);
itchy, watery eyes (conjunctivitis);
sneezing, runny nose (rhinitis);
wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness (asthma symptoms); and
in severe cases, systemic anaphylaxis including critical asthma symptoms, throat swelling, fall in blood pressure, loss of consciousness, and, very rarely, death.
At National Jewish Health, some of the nation's best doctors work with patients to help alleviate and manage allergy symptoms.
