Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX Thank you for you query.
basically this is true...but...
even allergy to semen is very rare. The majority of these allergies are localized and manifest as rash,itching or local erithema. Less than 1% of them may cause systemic response such as dizziness, breathing difficulties or hypotension. And extremely rarely death may occur. Such reported cases in scientific literature can be count on fingers,of one hand. So this is not something that should worry any man or woman. wish you good health. regards
