What about condom allergies?

Flush with lukewarm water to relieve condom allergies! Condoms are one of the most used contraceptive methods. Some data show that the use rate of condoms in developed countries can reach 50%-60%.

The latex condoms currently produced are all made of methyl silicone oil for isolation and lubrication, which has greatly reduced the chance of causing allergies to users. But condoms are chemicals after all, and some people, especially those with allergies, can still cause latex or lubricant allergies.

For example, men may experience redness, itching, and tingling on the penis after using it. If not handled properly, some may even develop into ulceration, erosion and exudation; women’s allergic symptoms include itching and burning in the vulva and vagina, and vaginal irritation. Mucosal congestion, edema, increased leucorrhea, etc.

Once allergy symptoms appear, first rinse with warm water, wipe clean, do not wash with soap or hot water, so as not to increase irritation. You can also apply some anti-allergic ointment thinly to the allergic area, which can improve symptoms and prevent infection. If the symptoms are more serious, you should seek medical attention in time, and take some anti-allergic drugs or use some hormones appropriately under the guidance of the doctor. The symptoms can generally be improved or eliminated within a few days. Also, stop having sex within two weeks of the onset of the allergy, and switch to other contraceptives for subsequent sex.
