ALLERGIC TO LATEX GLOVES? WE HAVE THE ANSWER

An allergy to latex is a serious (but generally not fatal) condition, with symptoms including hives, itching, a stuffy or runny nose, wheezing, chest tightness and breathing difficulties.

In most cases symptoms begin within minutes after exposure to latex containing products, such as?disposable gloves. In addition, due to the nature of sweat build up, the skin under the gloves can be red and scaly, leading to eczema. These symptoms are caused by an allergy to the protein found in natural rubber, so naturally avoidance is the best way to prevent any reactions.

The number of people showing these latex allergy-related symptoms has?significantly increased over the last decade, so much so that many companies who require disposable gloves are opting for alternatives to latex just to be on the safe side. If you have employees who are allergic to latex, here are the best alternative disposable gloves you can buy.

Vinyl gloves

Another naturally latex-free solution are vinyl disposable gloves, which are made using synthetic materials to avoid any allergic reactions. These gloves are very common in the healthcare and catering sectors and due to vinyl having a less elastic nature than nitrile they tend to have a looser fit and smooth, comfortable feel. They?re also a great cost-effective alternative to latex and nitrile options.
