Allergic to my wife?

I think I might be allergic to my wife. After we have sex I get a rash (reddish bumps with a white interior) over my chest, stomach, arms, neck, & groin. Pretty much anywhere our skin touches. The rash causes a pretty mild itch, but it is starting to drive me crazy. The symptoms also occur if I just sleep in the same bed or use a pillow that she has. I've had to sleep in another room at night. It sucks! I saw a dermatologist and he gave me tetracycline and periactin and neither has done a thing to help. This symptoms started about 6 months ago. My wife was 5 months pregnant at the time. Has anyone ever heard of such a thing? This is really frustrating for me and for her.

  • Probably allergic to something she is using, but you are not, like perfume, soap, body lotion etc.

  • I was going to say the same thing. Check the fragrances of her deodorant and soaps or perfume and see if one of those make you feel ill. ;)
