In brief: Skin and respiratory
The most common adverse reaction to latex is a skin irritation that happens soon after contact with latex and resembles a rash.
You can also get a more serious allergic reaction that occurs after about 24hrs with more redness and swelling. The most dangerous reaction is antibody mediated and can cause severe swelling, redness, and possibly difficulty breathing as latex particles can be inhaled.
