Latex allergy

  1. I developed a systemic latex allergy after working a day in the OR-it took a week for me to become covered with hives and having a difficult time breathing - l am off work and have been told-too bad you can't work in the hospital any longer! I need additional education on my case management skills and legal nurse consulting which I recently started....the insurance company doesn't feel the same way-they think there are "101" jobs for nurses out there! I live in a rural area where there are only hospitals, nursing homes, etc. I visited my husband in the hospital recently and began to itch just from being around the IV tubing! My legs are mottled and my always be-any suggestions or knowledge of latex allergies?
