Keeper latex allergy symptoms?

Hi there, I used to belong to this community a few years ago when I first started using the Keeper, which I've now had for about four years. I've been really happy with it except that in the past 6-9 months, I've been having annoying symptoms associated with my period--headaches, miserable runny nose, itchy eyes. It finally dawned on me that this may be a new latex allergy, but I don't get much itching or sensitivity in the vulva/vagina--which seems to be what everyone else mentions. Is that possible?

On the same lines, does anyone have a recommendation between the Mooncup and the Diva Cup for someone who otherwise wouldn't be giving up the Keeper?
