Fact of the Day: Latex Paint Allergy

When someone has a latex allergy they are reacting to substances found in natural rubber latex originating from certain types of trees. While most water-based house paints claim to be latex, that type of latex is synthetic which means a person with a latex allergy would not be affected by the synthetic latex.

I have a skin allergy to latex so if I come in contact with it, I break out in a rash. Good thing I'm not into latex kink.
