Rachel P's Story

I have a latex allergy as well as Crohn's Disease, and use the injectable drug Humira to control my symptoms. Unfortunately, the rubber stopper on the end of the syringe contains latex. This causes me to immediately develop painful, raised, red welts at the injection site that last for days (& I must inject weekly). This seems a Pyrrhic medical victory that I trade in my continuous, painful Crohn's symptoms for an almost continuous painful, unsightly allergic reaction. It's one more medical issue I just don't need. Please make non-latex syringe covers!
