Latex is the most common allery to condoms. You can buy them without latex that is what's posing the problem.

I am allerig to latex, but only on "mucous lining surfaces"...my mouth, insides, and vagina.

I never had sex until after DH and I were engaged and I was 22 years old, so at first I really had NO IDEA what was going on. After we would have sex it felt like my vagina was on FIRE and swollen and the outer part would be swollen. I was very painfull and I remember thinking if that is what sex feels like why does everyone like it so much ! lol The burning and swollen feeling would last about a day or so, and I don't remeber if there were any other sypmtoms. But after a few months I asked him if this was normal and talked about trying it without a condom and babies and all, and POOF I never had that happen when we had sex agian, but be ware because if you do have the allery to latex you can get a reacton from toilet paper, certain kinds of underwear ( I can only wear all cotton Granny Panties LOL) and certain detergents and soaps may irratate you also. Good Luck.
