You mean LASIX (furosemide): Not latex. Did the doctor who prescribed the Lasix (furosemide) have any comment? Some reasons could be hypertension, varicose veins/venous insufficiency.
Dr. Randy Lisch

High blood pressure: This is usually caused by high blood pressure. Other causes of swelling to both feet include high salt intake in your diet, or kidney problems. Please see your doctor to determine which is your cause.

Systemic: Disease like CHF or kidney problems. See your internist.
