In brief: Yes.
Women can develop allergy to their partner's semen leading to anaphylaxis during intercourse.
Fortunately, this is a very rare problem.

In brief: No
No, allergies are to specific proteins.
More likely, you're allergic to something that person wears like a natural fiber of clothing, a perfume/cologne, a lotion/cream, or something external on their body or clothes like cat dander for example.
