Hi,

You are suffering from allergy to the latex gloves. It would be best to avoid use of latex  and use non latex products and also carry an antihistamine or antiallergic medication handy in case of a sudden allergic reaction.

Consult your doctor whether you need to carry an epi-pen for use in case of an emergency.

Let us know if you have any other doubts and post us on how you are doing.

Regards.
