Allergy Awareness Week – 26th – 30th April

Welcome to allergy awareness week – a chance to raise awareness about all allergies whilst highlighting the difficulties people with allergies experience.

Allergy Awareness Week 2021

Here at Medi-Inn we would like to talk about Latex Allergies as we can provide an alternative to latex gloves for medical professionals.

We supply medical and hygiene gloves in many materials including latex, so it is extremely important that we are able to supply a suitable alternative.

Latex is a natural rubber made from a ‘milky’ substance found in plants which contains proteins which to some, could cause an allergic reaction. An allergy to latex is very complex because everyone’s experience is unique. Some people have severe reactions while others only experience mild reactions.

According to the NHS up to 5% of people could have an allergy although not all will show symptoms.

It’s important that the right gloves are chosen to carry out the work required and to prevent skin problems.

We suggest the nitrile glove as the go-to alternative to the latex glove.

Nitrile is a synthetic rubber made from a combination of materials. It has a higher puncture resistance than any other glove material as well as better chemical resistance.

Allergic reactions to nitrile are less common and reactions affect only the skin under the gloves.

So, the choice is yours….
