Many possibilities: Both possibilities you mentioned should be evaluated and it is common to have irritant or allergic reactions to body washes, latex and spermicidal lubricants (commonly on condoms) but your physician will also want to make sure you don't have an infection. In rarer cases women can have allergic reactions to male seminal fluids -- some might possibly be getting onto you during intercourse.
