Hi all.. I have just recently found out that my latex allergy has gone from being just contact dermatitis to anaphylaxis. I work in the medical field which doesnt help but in 3 seperate occasions I have needed epi shots at work because Ive gone into anaphylaxis from contact with latex. It scares me because alot of times we dont know if something contains latex or not. And I dont carry an epipen yet. I havent talked to my primary doctor about it yet and since all my anaphylactic reactions have been at work where there have been doctors there for emergency action I havent needed ER yet. But anyway, I was just wondering if any of you have or know of someone that has an anaphylactic allergy to latex. I know many people with slight allergies to latex like rash, etc. But I have never met anyone else that gets reactions this bad to latex.
Any ideas would be helpful.
Oh I am also severly allergic to peanuts. But like I said I still dont even have an epipen. Probably not a very good idea since I never know when Im going to go into anaphylactic shock again.
Its scary and Im still very new to this so like i said, any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
