I have a latex allergy, and it's usually pretty severe
Patient :I have a latex allergy, and it's usually pretty severe with any prolonged exposure. (Raised Hives, swelling, blotchy skin, swollen joints) When I use a condom there are no visible signs, but my penis goes numb after about 5 minutes and even hours after removing it I still cannot ejaculate. Is it possible that the lubricant/spermicide is simply slowing an allergic reaction to the latex?
