I am allergic to latex, so I use non-latex condoms. My question is about lubrication. I know that some lubes can be harmful for condoms, and I was wondering what lubes are safe to use for non-latex condoms. I am able to find info about what harms latex condoms, but I haven't been able to find anything related to non-latex condoms. I want to practice safer sex, but it is getting confusing.
Please help me. Thank you! -Aki

Hi Aki and welcome to Scarleteen,
There aren't any lubes that are knwon to be harmful with non-latex condoms. Your best bet is probably going to be a good quality water-based lube, but should you use anything else know that it won't cause the condom to be less effective.
Does that help at all?
