I've been getting pain around the edge my foreskin after the usage of condoms (latex & non-latex). i lube my penis & the condom before intercourses, it has been fine for the past years. not sure what's causing the pain lately like a sudden allergy?

Suggest sensitivity: I would consider the frequency of intercourse and length of episodes. Be sure to have proper cleansing and retraction of your foreskin. Your family physician would be helpful with a thorough exam, This doesn't suggest an allergy, but possibly a sensitivity.

Get checked: Condoms can rip, tear or ride and slide, leaving you vulnerable. I suggest a medical exam for observation and evaluation.
