Latex Allergies And Alternatives
We offer the best Condoms at Wholesale and Bulk Quantities
In it's natural form rubber latex is derived from tropical rubber trees.
Removed in it's liquid form it is then processed to make many of the following
rubber products used at home and at work:
- Tape and bandages
- Diapers and sanitary pads
- Nipples for baby bottles
Additionally a large quantity of dental and medical supplies are also
made of latex. Many people are aware of latex allergies however few are
aware that all of these products have non-latex alternatives. Allergic reactions
to latex may appear as itchy or red watery eyes, sneezing or runny nose, coughing,
a rash or hives chest tightness and shortness of breath to name a few. However,
there are many things that one may do to prevent these symptoms like wearing
a glove liner, proper hand sanitizing, or changing to the non-latex alternative
to each of the products responsible for the outbreak.
Don't Be A Fool!
be a fool and get caught saying "I can't wear condoms because
I'm allergic to latex". Today a sound alternative to
latex condoms can be found in the "polyurethane condoms"
found on the market. Although polyurethane condoms are less elastic
and a bit loser fitting than the latex condoms, they are just as effective
against STD's such as Herpes and AIDS and also do a fine job of preventing
unwanted pregnancies as well.
The polyurethane condoms require a bit more care
in the use and lubrication
departments. Using a lubricant such as KY Jelly or another such lube
and performing a bit less energetically can prevent the tearing or
slipping off sometimes associated with wearing a polyurethane condom.
These non latex condoms should only be worn by people who are allergic
to the standard latex condoms. Since the polyurethane condoms are
slightly more apt to slip off or tear during those "extra lusty"
moments or from improper lubrication a latex condom is a better bet
for those who can wear them without allergic reaction.
Once again, please don't practice unsafe sex simply because you have a latex
allergy as this is no longer a reasonable excuse. Today there is another
alternative to latex and it's name is polyurethane. If you need more
