Localized: Most commonly, latex allergies are localized to where the latex touches your skin, so in the case of a condom, your penis would become inflamed, possible swelling, red, possibly itchy, and may get bumps from the local reaction. In sever cases, your whole body could have a reaction and you could get short of breath, etc. Local tx for first, emergent for the serious reaction. Best wishes.
