Why should someone with allergy to latex wear a MedicAlert medical ID ?
Latex has become a common allergy. It can still be found in medical equipment and is widely used in consumer goods. The more you are exposed to latex, the more severe the reaction can become, eventually leading to anaphylactic shock. Tell your friends and family about your allergy to latex, but more importantly, let paramedics and doctors know. Don't wait. Sign Up
