Latex Allergy Information

Latex Allergy

Avoidance is the only real treatment for latex allergy — stay away from latex as much as possible; especially stay away from balloons, which put latex molecules into the air as they are inflated, as they deflate, and when they POP!

Latex allergy guidelines for food — don’t handle/prepare food wearing latex gloves; don’t handle dishes with latex gloves; don’t bring balloons into room or near anyone who might be allergic to latex.  See below for safe restaurants.

Related food allergies — I must avoid these: potatos, kiwi, bananas, avocados, chestnuts. Some can’t have strawberries.

Some who are allergic to latex are also allergic to aloe vera, which is now commonly added to soap, lotions, shampoos, and other personal care products.

Dr. Peterson is a kind and gentle and skilled dentist  who has NO LATEX GLOVES!!  http://www.stpetersdentalcare.net/

The St. Charles YMCA on Shady Springs Drive and the McClay Library at 2760 McClay Road in St. Charles have both banned balloons.

Here’s a list of “safe” restaurants and other businesses in the St. Peters / St. Charles / St. Louis, Missouri area — but I always check each time I go in, as they sometimes change gloves and procedures. Many thanks to those willing to make a safe place to enjoy dining and visiting with friends!
