Allergy: Need more information. Is your partner using a latex condom (possible allergy)? If, however, it is the soap, then i would recommend your using a baby shampoo or baby soap as a method to clean the area. Avoid chemicals and scents in the soap(s) if possible. Avoid intercourse until the irritation is resolved, and avoid products that contain alcohol.
