Answered it: You already answered your question. You developed a rash because you're allergic to latex. Latex touched your body. Take some Diphenhydramine for the rash and from now on, have your partner use non-latex condoms (they are available).

Itchy bottom: If you are latex sensitive and the itching is localized to the perineal area in the future be sure your partner is using latex free condoms. If the itching is more generalized you may be actually be systemically allergic (ige mediated) to latex and you should additionally see a board certified allergist.
