Jan. 13, 2013 - PRLog -- Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of another online video to help educate the public about issues that may impact their health.  Their latest educational video discusses latex allergies.

A latex allergy is a reaction to certain proteins in latex rubber. The amount of latex exposure needed to produce sensitization or an allergic reaction is unclear, but it appears that increasing the exposure to latex proteins increases the risk of developing an allergic reaction.
 
“Healthcare workers are at an increased risk of developing a latex allergy because they use latex gloves frequently,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video.  “In sensitized individuals, symptoms usually begin within minutes of exposure.  However, they can sometimes occur hours later and can be quite varied. Mild reactions to latex involve skin redness, rash, hives, or itching. Skin contact is not the only type of latex exposure. Latex proteins can become fastened to the lubricant powder used in some gloves and when workers change their gloves these particles can become airborne and then be inhaled.”
