ANSWER #1 of 1

atex allergy can be mild or severe, with symptoms such as:

* Itchy, red, watery eyes
* Sneezing or runny nose
* Coughing
* Rash or hives
* Chest tightness
* Shortness of breath

Some people who wear latex gloves get bumps, sores, cracks or red, raised areas on their hands. These symptoms usually appear 12 to 36 hours after contact with latex. Changing to non-latex gloves, using glove liners, and paying more attention to hand care can help relieve these symptoms.

A person who is highly allergic to latex can also have a life-threatening allergic reaction, called anaphylactic shock. Symptoms include:

* Difficulty breathing
* Dizziness
* Confusion
* Wheezing
* Nausea
* Vomiting
* Rapid or weak pulse
* Loss of consciousness

Someone having an anaphylactic reaction needs immediate medical attention.

PS. If it is from the latex, then a severe allergy usually happens almost immediately.
