A 'Veteran' - active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve - is one who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check payable to his country for an amount of 'up to, and including his life.'

Sadly I'm told not, as unlike other allergies Latex gets worse the more you come into contact.  
So it just wouldn't work (or so my Doctor tells me)  
He looked for trials a year or so ago and came up blank.  
 
Something I remember when I was younger was a piece on the news about them injecting an antihistamine implant for hay fever sufferers, I can't find anything about that either.

mmm, that dose is rather like that of homeopathy. I have had some success with this therapy but since there is deemed to be insufficient clinical evidence NHS Lothian have discontinued the service and if I cant source further supplies I will have to resort to antihistamines with all their related side effects.

There is a similar desenitization service offered at Southampton General but I have been told by my consultant as I have multiple allergies this would not be effective so would not recommend the treatment.
