Why Latex Free Headmaster Collars?
Although the specific cause of latex allergies is not known, it is thought that frequent and repeated exposure to rubber and latex products may initiate symptoms in some people. Not really an allergy, but an irritant or contact dermatitis, which is not uncommon in reaction to rubber latex. It is an itchy, red rash which breaks out on the skin where latex contacts it. It usually appears soon after contact, but can be delayed up to 24 hours. The rash may continue for hours or even days.
The condition is a reaction to the proteins from the rubber tree which remain in the product, and also residual chemical s in the manufacturing product, therefore, you may develop sneezing and a runny nose. These are uncomfortable symptoms, but not dangerous. You can treat it with lotions like a hydrocortisone cream, calamine, or taking an antihistamine if appropriate.
This is now avoided so everyone can benefit from the headmaster collar. It is a great support for head control. Those that are sensitive to latex can use this collar in confidence with new materials.
