Latex allergy test. Woman's arm during an allergy test for latex. A piece of a latex glove has been taped to her arm to see whether it provokes contact allergic dermatitis. This reaction results in the development of an area of inflamed skin. Although some allergic conditions may be alleviated by drugs, usually diet or behaviour is altered to lessen exposure to the allergens that trigger the immune response.
