Dear Anon,

It sounds as though you may be allergic or irritated from the latex of the condom. Consider getting checked by your GYN to verify that you do in fact have an allergy and nothing else.

Here is some more information on latex allergies: http://www.empowher.com/media/reference/treating-latex-allergy
