Do I Have A Latex Allergy Or Glue Allergy If Tape Leaves A Rash On Me
Contact allergy: Most of the time it is latex allergy. There r non-latex medical tapes. U can find them in all pharmacies. Some has a paper backing. Try those. If u don't develop a rash, then u r allergic to latex. When in doubt, consult a dermatologist or allergist for patch testing.See 1 more doctor answer
Do you have advice for someone w/ skin reaction/rash to medical tapes? Even hypoallergenic tape! Latex allergy too. What should I be aware of?
Tape allergy: Wound dressings can typically be held in place with materials such a coban (similar to an ace wrap). Make sure you have tried several brands of (non-latex) paper tapes before you give up.
Possible: It is possible that the rash is either an irritant (more common) or an allergic contact dermatitis from using the sports equipment. The most common allergens found in equipment include rubber, metals and adhesives. A good history and evaluation of the equipment along with possible patch testing can help identify the cause. See a dermatologist who specializes in contact dermatitis and patch testing.See 1 more doctor answer
I have a latex allergy when I have a reaction, should use epipen if I have a rash and hives and itchiness on my face? Or try Benadryl (diphenhydramine)? No SOB
Can a latex allergy get significantly worse? I used to only get a rash, but recently I broke out in hives (all over) w/ trouble breathing....
It can get worse: Sounds like you need to see an allergist for a treatment plan.
Yes, 2 types: There are 2 kinds of condoms that are not made from latex: 1) "skins" or natural condoms that are actually made from lamb intestines and 2) synthetic condoms made from polyurethane or polyisoprene. Natural condoms protect against pregnancy but do not prevent the spread of stds. The synthetic condoms can help prevent pregnancy and stds as well as latex condoms do.
Yes and No: There are condoms that are not made of latex, particuarly polyurethane and lambskin. If you have a latex allergy, you will react to all other latex.
Yes: Yes...Condom use does not cause a latex allergy.
Maybe: A lot of clinical environments have been moving away from latex. But if you are wearing them then yes, you may have developed an allergy. However, the act of scrubbing may be the cause of your problem too, and it may not be an actual allergy. Irritant contact dermatitis is more common than allergic contact dermatitis. See a dermatologist to help you figure this out.
See an allergist: The symptoms of latex allergy can vary considerably from localized rashes to generalized hives and breathing problems. Testing involves blood tests and sometimes patch testing. See an allergist for evaluation and proper management.
Could I have a latex allergy? I experience discomfort and a slight 'rawness' during and after intercourse despite using lube. No other symptoms. Why?
Not allergy: You are describing a local irritation. You may need more foreplay, a different partner, better relaxation, much more lube. Tell your partner to be more gentle and go slower. Maybe a different brand of condom.See 1 more doctor answer
I know for the depo shot it's a 0.3% failure rate. What causes that failure rate? Because I really dislike condoms I have a latex allergy
Usually human error: No one is perfect, and with typical use of a product, there may be a delay in getting the next injection, women are not the same size, and a standard dose may not be adequate for someone with morbid obesity, or the medication may not have been stored under idea conditions.
