people are obviously going to reply if you tell them not to.

I love how all of you feel like you should tell a third year medical student that there is latex-free gloves out there! When so many of you know this, I would assume the "soon to be doctor" knows!

ikr? that's what I was thinking

I must go to a crappy hospital.... I've only seen latex at mine..

Damn. Maybe there's a pill or an ointment for this allergy?

Sun_Kissed18 25

I'm sure that since it's caused by contact that there is a cream for the reaction after it has occured but I think the only prevention is to not touch latex

I'm sure there are alternative gloves for people with that allergy.

There is. My dentist has to use them for me as I'm allergic to the powder on the latex ones.

Yeah, I had a stupid moment and didn't realise nitrile gloves don't have latex in them. Then again, I can't say I've ever read the box in great detail.

My mom has worked as a nurse in many years, shes now in the ambulance.. She's allergic too. Have you ever heard of latex-free glove?

adriane209 0

Did her being allergic to latex develop? Or had she always been.

So what? Every medical facility is required to have non-latex gloves on hand for latex allergy patients. Tell whoever runs your program you need them on hand at all times or purchase and bring your own. They're not that expensive.

They do make latex free gloves, but they aren't as good. As for condoms..... You're screwed!

sundayporch 2

You do realise that there are alternatives to latex condoms, too, right?

There are latex free condoms, but I'm pretty sure they are not as safe.

btterflygrl 0

they are safe, actually. stronger, too it seems

There are latex free condoms out there. They're just as safe as any other condom. Don't let the dumbwits here fool ya :)

The only non-latex condoms that are unsafe to use are sheep skin condoms. The rest are very safe, if you use them properly and carefully.

Actually, most non-latex condoms dont protect against STDs (says it on the box). They also arent as reliable as latex, they are safe, just not as safe.

This is not an FML. OP is an idiot with too much time (and rashes) on his hands.
