Allergy is by far one of the most common diseases affecting about 10% of the population. Allergy to latex appears to be a relatively new and increasingly frequent problem. The reason for this is not clear, but includes increased use of latex gloves over the past decade and changes in the manufacture of latex products. In this particular case an eighteen year old lady who was given restorative treatment for multiple carious teeth, reported with complication of contact dermatitis- days after the treatment. On through investigations for all the allergens the allergy was found to be from latex gloves.
