Dry Top Latex Reaction
A couple of weeks ago I was white water kayaking, new to the sport this year. We were on the river approximately 6.5 hours. When removing my dry top, my fellow kayakers were alarmed to see that I had welts around my neck. It was mentioned to me (we had a medic with us that day), that I was experiencing an allergic reaction to the latex in my dry top. I did not encounter any breakout on my wrists, only my neck. The swelling did go down but I was left with a rash around my neck. It took over a week to clear up; some people thought that I tried to hang myself.
So what can you do in this case? I cannot wear my dry top as is again.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
Please reply if it is related to this issue, thank you.
