If there is lack of lubrication, then ky puts out plenty of types to help. If you have an allergy to latex then you must check to find ones made from something other than latex, or whatever they are made of, or if they are coated with something. The box should list everything on it. Check before you buy, so as not to get the same type that is causing you problems.

If you notice irritation, redness or itching after using a condom, there may be an allergic reaction to the condom. Allergy to rubber or latex condoms is very unusual, but it would be helpful  to switch to a polyurethane type. Irritation may also be due to the spermicide component of some lubricated condoms.  Try to  avoid condoms that are labelled 'spermicidally lubricated'. Another possible cause of irritation is too much friction, so use extra lubrication.

Take care and regards.
