In brief: Yes.
You can get allergic contact dermatitis of any part of the body; the vulva is not exempt.
Common contactants affecting that area include perfumes, cleansers, lubricants, spermicidal gels, and vinyl (which many condoms are made out of).

In brief: Yes
Contact dermatitis is very common.
Soaps, detergents, fabric softeners, panty liners, etc. All can cause irritation. Many patients think they have a yeast infection when in fact they are allergic to one of the above items. As a side note, alway brand products seem to have a higher incident of contact allergy.
