I've already taken 100mg benadryl and googled my ass off.. I have my epipen standing by in case of a worse reaction.

Does anyone know if they are latex free???

There is nothing on the box about anything rubber/latex so I figured I was okay. I looked at the ingredients.. nothing. I used one and about 15 mins after it touching my face (5 mins after taking it off).. I am all hived up and irritated as fucking hell over this. Ugh.

It could be their "glue" that is giving you a reaction.   I would email them right away and find out.

Im waiting on a response. I was hoping maybe someone here had any idea since google isnt helping. My dr is going to tell me to wait to see if it develops any worse since I already took benadryl.

I don't think it has latex since I've never had a reaction, but the adhesive stuff might be irritating you. But I haven't used them in years so they could have changed how they make them.

You're allergic to latex too?! What happens when you come in contact with it usually?

I've never had a reaction.

To put it in perspective if you touch me with a latex glove, I will have a giant red raised itchy hand print for a few days.

I'm not sensitive enough to need an epi pen for one though (although I do have an epi pen fir other things near by)

I've never had a reaction either is it possible that it might be something else that irritated your skin
I'm allergic to latex as well my skin starts peeling off like a chameleon and then it gets really hard and dry like a rock its really nasty I hate this allergy

There's an ingredient in adhesives that people with latex sensitivity can also have a reaction to... polypropylene. I have to be careful what kind of bandaids I use because even some latex-free ones still have polypropylene in them and I still have a reaction.

Hives and edema to the point of my throat swelling shut if its near my face/neck and not dealt with fast enough.

I have a mile long list of allergies.

So fat Ive had nothing but the hives and swelling so I am hoping I am good.. this is ridiculous.
