Latex sensitivity has become recognised as an international public health issue. It is especially serious for those in the healthcare professions, due to the regular use of latex gloves. It is vital that gloves do not impart any harm either to the person wearing them or to the patient being touched. However, evidence in the podiatry profession suggests that skin problems associated with glove use and sensitivity to latex may be a significant problem.
