I was helping my husband fill a bunch of Zuru Bunch O' Balloons and was unaware that they contain a clear gel that helps retain the water inside them. As the balloons were filling, this gel was leaking out and getting on my skin. I have no other known skin allergies besides related to my gluten intolerance. Itches like crazy. This product is not marked as containing wheat or gluten, because it isn't meant for internal use, but may cause external reactions.

I would put my money on a latex allergy or intolerance.  You can not even bring latex balloons into the hospital anymore, just the Mylar ones.  Did you call to confirm the “gel”.  It makes not mention of a gel on the Amazon or Costco website.

No, I don't have any latex allergy. I use latex gloves at home regularly for housecleaning and don't react at all.

I reached out to the company and they responded that old packages of the product still contain the slime powder, but newer ones don't. Please see attached.
