woman allergic to condom!

I got the Trojan ENZ spermicidal lubricant condom for my boyfriend to use with me and I think I am allergic!! I just read the box and it says "If you or your partner has had any allergic reaction to latex rubber, spermicide, or lubricants, do not use this product, stop use and see your doctor"

what is so bad that a doctor has to be seen? I've had these symptoms for a few days until I realized it could be the condom and not a regular yeast infection !!!!!

what should I do until I see my doc? Thanks.

Re: woman allergic to condom!

For now, just don't put anything on that part of your body. Try a lukewarm bath in plain water if you are uncomfortable, or a cool compress to ease the itching.

Next time, look for condoms without spermicide. Spermicide causes problems for a lot of women.
