: Does anyone out there have problems with an allergy to newspapers? I cannot read the paper for more than five minutes or I break out in a rash that burns and itches.
: Also, when exposed to fluorescent lights for awhile any exposed skin turns bright red (sometimes spotty) gets very hot to the touch and itches, severely at times. Appreciate any answers.
I don't know about the fluorescent lights. But from what I know about newspapers, most from what I understand contain latex, it has something to do with the ink. Latex allergy would be consistant with then rash, itching and burning you are experiencing. Are you itching from any others products? Maybe you should be tested for latex allergy. good luck
