Latex Allergies

Has your mouth ever become itchy after blowing up a balloon or eating an avocado?  If the answer is yes, you may be allergic to latex.  Latex allergy is important to diagnose because of the potential for serious reactions to latex containing products during medical procedures.  Many foods are cross-reactive with latex, as well.  Your doctor at Hudson-Essex Allergy can test you for latex allergy and educate you to the foods you should avoid.
