I too am one of the lucky double allergic-Type I and IV.....
And yes the change from one reaction to the next is/can be unpredictable and for me even delayed...
It is important not just to have no latex products be used on your person- like gloves and dental dams, but also that you and your caregivers are aware and not using powdered latex gloves in the office at all.....the powder flies everywhere and settles on the non-latex products as well and cross contaminates them...they are only latex free if they are protected from being stored separately and isolated. The latex parrtic;es are circulated attached to the cornstarch and are reciculated everytime the air system is on...making it unsafe to breathe!

I have been allergic to latex for quite some ine but recently even goung near balloons have made me have trouble breathing. My sandles this summer were made with latex I know this because every time I put them on I get contact dermatitis. When I go the the dentest I usually don't mention my allergy so they end up using the dental dam but next time I'll have to mention it!
