CDC Recommendations on Latex Allergy
Workers in the health care industry (physicians, PAs, nurses, dentists, technicians, etc.) are at risk for developing latex allergy because they use latex gloves frequently. Also at risk are workers with less frequent glove use (hairdressers, housekeepers, food service workers, etc.) and workers in industries that manufacture latex products. Take steps to protect yourself from latex exposure and allergy by following the recommended CDC protocols.
