Is there an alternative to latex condoms?
Q: I am allergic to latex condoms. My doctor advised me to use polyurethane condoms. I cannot find them in Delhi. Please advise any alternative.
A:What you have seems to be more of a latex-induced contact dermatitis than an allergy, per se. Sometimes, this can be treated and controlled with anti-allergic medication. If that doesn't work, and you do not have access to polyurethane or lambskin condoms, you might have to change your choice of contraceptive. However, please remember that everything that protects from pregnancies does not protect from sexually transmitted diseases.
