    ok.... hopefully I'm not the only one....

    Recently, my partner and I switched from a water-based lube to a silicone lube and almost a week later, I started breaking out in very red, dry, itchy skin on my penis. I'm assuming its an allergy. I've also thought it's ringworm, poison ivy, or yeast.... but those seem far less likely. I bought some antihistamines for it and its helping, but at the moment, its still present.

    I was curious if anyone else has had allergic reactions to silicone with similar symptoms?

    It is not allergy, Overuse of such lubricants cause Irritations, stop using them immediately and switch to KY "johnson & johnson", it doesn't cause any type of irritations (Redness, itchy etc...) even with daily use.
