Kate knew if she did this she would have some sort of reaction and sure enough latex powder got in my eyes and my lips, they both blew up to at least three times the normal size and Kate couldn't see out of her eyes properly until they went down hours later.
"Hi, I'm Jo, mum of 2 and retired police officer from England, UK. I have had severe allergies (peanuts, almonds and latex) for the last 13 years and had many anaphylactic shocks. I fully support Globalaai as allergy awareness is vital. There is lack of information about allergies or they are often misunderstood and not taken seriously."
