Days: Length of reaction to a single exposure would likely be days. If true allergy, would be expected to recur with greater severity. Try non-latex condom?

Will allergic reaction to condom cause tiny clumps in disharge?

Probably not: Such an allergy usually would cause itching or redness around/on the penis. Sometimes little bumps as well. If you have any burning or pain with urination or ejaculation, you should let your dr. Check you. Of course you could first try a "natural , non-latex " condom and if the clumps go away it probably was from the latex.

What could I do if I caught an allergic reaction to a condom?

Benadryl (diphenhydramine): i am not sure what the reaction is, if it is serioius and having trouble breathing go the the ER and get a shot. You say it is an allergic reaction, but exactly what is happening tht makes you say that? There are people allergic to latex and they get a terrible rash form it. if that is the case applying a steroid cream like cortisone or kenalog (triamcinolone) is very helpful.
