Possible: While it is possible that you are allergic to latex, I would be wondering as well as to other explanations for a rash. Given that a condom was used the possibility of a rash associated with a STD is unlikely. I think the next step would be to have a physician look at the rash and go through the standard differential diagnosis. I just wouldn't assume it is latex allergy.
