Reaction to Latex | Vytex Natural Rubber Latex

Reaction to Latex

An allergic reaction to latex often goes undiagnosed. Itchy skin irritations coupled with red discoloration are common indications, but many people do not know the cause of their symptoms.

Vytex® Natural Rubber Latex (NRL) ultra low protein-based latex products offer dramatic health, safety and environmental benefits to manufacturers and end users. Vytex NRL can be easily incorporated into existing manufacturing processes of natural rubber latex and could ultimately help those who suffer from reactions to latex. Vytex NRL is an eco-friendly, advanced latex material with virtually undetectable levels of the antigenic proteins that can lead to latex allergies.

Latex allergies can be caused by repeated exposure to the proteins found in latex products. Some of these symptoms include:

  • Skin rash
  • Hives
  • Irritated or watery eyes
  • Swollen eyes
  • Itching
  • Difficulty breathing
