hi i am marguerite and it sounds like you have the first stages of a chemical allergy so that you know what to stay away from as you dermatoogist to set you up for a patch test called the true test. this should show that you are allergic to colophony or mbt or both if this is so then get tested for a latex allergy. until then use a soap for senstive skin and one with out a frangrance in the ingredience. if this is connect to uning condomns then it is possible it is a latex allergy the reaction can flare up within 72 hour ater removal of condomn.
