In brief: Different types

True allergy to the rubber tree sap protein can lead to anaphylaxis, wheezing, hives, throat swelling, fainting, and in extreme cases, even death.
The chemicals added during the process making rubber tree sack into latex product (called vulcanizing agents) most commonly cause contact allergy, which is usually a rash that can be itchy, burning, or blistering.
