: I am looking for other firefighters with the NRL allergy. If there is anyone out there, please let me know if you have found alternatives to latex products used on the job, primarly SCBA's etc.
frank i forgot to tell you it is very important that you carry at least three epi-pens with you at all times at work your suit is probably rubber and boots and liner of ha underwear elastic rubber on shoes. if you have a bad reeeaaction use that epi-pen it has saved my life more times tahan i can count.
other symtpom of latex allergy is heart rasing and heart-atack symptoms clasping and difficult breating backpain which travles around the right side under the breast and it is very painful.
read cerebral allergy help you to know that this is what any allergy can can do to your head so doctors dont tell you you are having panic attacks or other bull . it is reall and it can kill. be carefull if yuou are going to try to keep your job. i lost my business i was a beatuician and latex allergy turned into the chemicall allergy also so i can not be around anything with scent or fragrances at all.good luck
