Hi everyone, welcome to #SpinaBifida (intro music) Over the years, a lot of you have asked about my Latex Allergy. Many of you might know that people will Spina Bifida are prone to developing a latex allergy. Because of this, my family has always taken precautions. When I was a kid, I didn’t have a latex allergy. It wasn’t until I was 18 years old and my class in high school had a party. There were balloons next to where I was sitting and without touching them, I started to develop bad hives. That’s when my allergy began. And since then, I’ve made it a point to learn what items have latex and how to avoid them. Right now my allergy isn’t bad, I just get hives that begin around my lips. And then they start to spread down my body if I don’t take any medicine. The medicine I usually take is benadryl or motrin. I should also point out, not every item with latex bothers me. So balloons, newspapers, toothbrushes that aren’t Oral B brand, and aloe vera, I always react to them. But band aids that have latex generally I don’t react. But to be safe, I try my best to avoid it all. And that’s pretty much my latex allergy. It’s not severe but it is what it is and I just try to avoid latex as much as possible. Because I’d rather not have a reaction. And that’s it for #SpinaBifida! If you like this video and wanna help support me, please consider becoming a Patron on my Patreon page.
