Latex Rubber Balloons
Latex rubber balloons can cause severe allergic reactions for those with a high sensitivity level to latex. Repeated exposure to latex balloons can cause severe reactions including skin irritation, hives, and difficulty breathing. If you come into contact with rubber balloons on a regular basis and experience these symptoms, you may be allergic to latex.
Vytex® Natural Rubber Latex (NRL) is an eco-friendly latex material that significantly reduces the antigenic proteins found in natural rubber latex, a key element in rubber balloons. Produced through a novel, patented process, Vytex NRL retains all the positive qualities of latex with virtually undetectable levels of the antigenic proteins that can cause latex allergies. This development can help those who suffer from allergies caused by contact with latex rubber balloons. Look for natural rubber latex products carrying the ?Vytex® NRL? logo for a better latex with greatly reduced protein levels.
If you or someone you know has experienced an allergic reaction and think it?s from rubber balloons, contact your physician about your concerns and consider being tested for latex allergy.
