Could it be ... My laptop bag??

A couple of months ago I developed a small cluster of pimples at the base of my neck, right above my collar bone. It ... is quite gross, actually, but it doesn't itch. I cannot for the life of me think what is causing it. I'm not using any new products and I've never had an allergy to cosmetics. I did recently start carrying an different purse, but it is one I've had for years and recently resurrected.

But today I was looking at my laptop bag. I initially didn't think it could be the culprit because I carry it every day and it certainly isn't new. But then I noticed the underside of the shoulder strap pad is ripped and the inside padding is exposed. Could that be latex or latex covered?

I ask because I am allergic to latex, especially when it has started to break down a little. But I just itch like crazy for a little while after I'm exposed. Could a latex allergy instead cause a rash? Could the strap pad be the culprit?
