The Latex Allergy Crisis: A Forgotten Epidemic
by Margaret Konieczny
The increased use of rubber gloves created a latex allergy crisis for health care workers. Articles have been written on the causes, symptoms, and treatments of latex allergy; however, there are few, if any, written experiences of those living with a hypersensitivity to latex. Author Margaret Konieczny shares her experiences, as well as the experiences of others, who suffer from a latex allergy.
