Is there latex in latex paint? I asked an allergy colleague and she stated there is not.

A:

Thank you for your inquiry.

It is true; latex paint does not actually contain latex. The term is a misnomer.

Thank you again for your inquiry and we hope this response is helpful to you.

Sincerely,
Phil Lieberman, M.D.
