Latex allergy is an allergic response to latex (rubber) products. Typical symptoms include watery eyes, wheezing, hives, rash, swelling and in severe cases, anaphylaxis (a life threatening reaction). These responses can occur when items containing latex touch the skin, the mucous membranes (like the mouth, genitals, bladder or rectum), open areas or bloodstream (especially during surgery).
