How can I test for Latex or Rubber allergy/sensitivity on my

Postby ronjohn » Wed Jun 10, 2015 9:34 pm

I've had contact dermatitis on my fingers(mostly right hand which I use most) for about 2 years now and I've narrowed it down to rubber sensitivity. I know there's a patch test but it runs over $1000 and I want to see if I can save that money by just avoiding either latex or pretty much all soft rubber materials. Is there a way to rule latex out? I've read that using latex gloves could irritate but not necessary an indication of latex allergy, could be other things in the glove. I've tapped pretty much every soft rubber item in my house other than cables which is harder to cover. Also, the gloves I use at the gym irritate my hands too. They're black suede like material. So could be the color black used in soft rubber? But there could also be latex in those gym gloves... so this is why I want to rule latex out.
