Non-Latex Allergy Chemical Reactions Chart

Find Out What's Really Bothering You!

Search this page {{press Ctrl and f at the same time}} for things that seem to cause a reaction

For example, search for latex paint
or polyurethane foam
or ink
or underwear

Although some of these items contain latex (liquid) rubber
or hard (dry) rubber, you may be having a reaction to chemicals, instead

For further information, including how to avoid these chemicals by using alternatives,
click on the chemical name on the right side of the chart.
Allerderm Laboratories has a great test kit to to find out for sure.
