In brief: Less common

Once manufacturers stopped using cornstarch powder and spray molds, immediate-type reactions like sneezing and wheezing became much less common.
Now latex allergy is rarely seen outside of high exposure groups such as health care workers and persons who have had multiple surgeries for spina bifida, genitourinary malformations, etc.
