In brief: Latex allergy?

Latex allergies are rare, but as with any other allergy, local swelling with itching and burning on the very sensitive tissues of the vaginal lips can occur. Over the counter steroid gel or cream is available without a prescription, and may reduce your symptoms rapidly.
If symptoms persist, see your gyn provider.
