Infections
I have had a terrible infection for the past 8 months. I have now noticed that the infection reappears after sexual intercouse whilst using condoms. Is it at all possible to be allergic to condoms??

Yes, latex allergy can occur. If you do not have the symptoms when you have sex withour condoms, then this may well be the case.
