View Full Version : Mertailor Latex Question

If someone has a latex allergy, would they be affected by me swimming in my mertailor latex tail in the same pool? What if they touched the tail?

I dont know since his old tails are not true latex, they're Alex Plus. They shouldnt be affected in the pool I dont think, but maybe shouldn't touch?

alex plus has some latex in it and this is another good reason for my tail ph research! its a bit confusing but i got the help of a chemist for next month.

I ordered some from him again and I'm currently waiting for them to arrive. But I would hate for some kid with an allergy to be affected by them during an event or something!

Maybe in your event papers mention your tail is latex? The planner for the event probably knows the children better and can figure out if one can't touch your tail due to the severity of the alergies.

Also, an idea: what about the diver's silicone spray to cover up the latex? It preserves the tail, and is one more layer between the latex and someone who may have alergies.

I know my dad's latex allergy is more to pure latex and when it has latex it's really for longer exposure than just a touch, but I wouldn't rely on that.
