User :   Is it possible for my boyfriend to be allergic to my vaginal secretions. And if so what can I do about it?
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hi
Doctor :  
Usually the bodily secretions of one person do not have significant allergic reactions to another
Doctor :  
Please give me a detailed problem you guys are facing
User :   We had oral sex and the next day he noticed a rash was developing on his chin. At first he thought it was just razor burn, but now we're not so sure. We've had regular sex too and that didn't cause anything. So I'm quite confused.
Doctor :  
It might not be an allergic reaction
Doctor :  
the allergic reaction cannot be spontaneous after few exposures
User :   Then what else could it be?
Doctor :  
Can you describe about the rash?
Doctor :  
Is it itchy?
Doctor :  
Is it severe?
Doctor :  
Is it increasing since its first appearance?
Doctor :  
What is the color?
Doctor :   etc
Doctor :  
do you see such rash on any other part of the body?
Doctor :  
are you there?
User :   He says it's not itchy. It's dry and flakey, painful to the touch, and dry red spots.
User :   But only on the chin
User :   No where else
Doctor :  
What is the size of the patch?
Doctor :  
When did it appear first?
User :   small and first started appearing on Friday afternoon (the day after)
Doctor :  
Is it increasing and more bothering than it initially was?
User :   It wasn't dry and flaky before and it doesn't seem to be spreading and the amount of pain is the same
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
I think this is a benign not a worrisome thing
Doctor :  
for treatment, it mostly isn't necessary
User :   What does that mean? and what could've caused it?
Doctor :  
I recommend applying a moisturizer containing ammonium lactate (over-the-counter)
Doctor :   It could be a simple contact dermatitis with anything
User :   Would we have to worry about this in the future when it comes to our sexual relationship?
Doctor :  
I guess there is nothing to do with each other as long as you both continue a monogamous relationship and disease free
User :   Ok. Just one more thing. Do you know an example of a moisturizer that contains that?
Doctor :  
Lac Hydrin
Doctor :  
Lactocalamine with Aloe
User :   Ok. thank you.
Doctor :   Either of them is fine
Doctor :  
Please fill the feedback form
Doctor :  
say done when done
User :   done
Doctor :  
I hope I was able to clear all your doubts
Doctor :  
Thanks for consulting me
Doctor :   Bye Good Day
User :   bye
