Latex allergy: Be sure you do not get further exposure to latex, as another reaction may be quite severe. Depending on where the reaction is, you may try topical 1% Hydrocortisone cream you can purchase at your pharmacy.

Latex condom allergy: The original allergic reaction can last a lot longer without treatment. Any further exposure to latex or latex condom becomes more severe with each successive exposure. It is wise to see an allergist about the latex allergy for future prevention.
