Doctor :  
and were they increasing since then
User :   before the encounter i had a tiny almost invisible red dot
User :   i only noticed because i was drying after the shower in front of lights
User :   so i would say the spot i noticed the day i stopped the antibiotci just before the encouter however
User :   it was different in nature
User :   these are wider
User :   last night i put vaseline
User :   and after that they just spread
Doctor :   Look the skin rashes on the glans penis are not be concerned but they are like warning signs for you
User :   warning
Doctor :  
You have to get few tests done becasue of the high risk encounters
User :   oh my God
User :   you mean the ones 4 and 9 years ago?
User :   of the last one?
Doctor :   even the last one
User :   do you think anything would show in my cbc i just did?
Doctor :  
User :   so i should just wait for results?
Doctor :  
User :   Doctor im so worried
Doctor :  
These are warning signs for you not to involve in high risk sex
Doctor :  
User :   i will never do that again
User :   ever
User :   could it be herpes?
Doctor :  
To clear off all the doubts, you better get these tests done VDRL, ELISA for HIV, Hepatitis B Antibody tires
Doctor :  
HPV titres
Doctor :  
THis is just to ensure that you are free from any disease
Doctor :  
Do not panic
User :   the doctor is checking hep a b and C
Doctor :  
User :   and it said something about immunology
Doctor :  
Let me know the reports once they are out
Doctor :  
You can put Lactocalamine lotion over there
Doctor :  
instead of vaseline
Doctor :  
and do not scratch
User :   do i get that over the counter?
User :   i keep checking it so often
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
That is over the counter
Doctor :   Abstain from sex
Doctor :  
for next 15 days
User :   one second i have a cream i will read what it is
User :   clotrimazole
Doctor :   No
Doctor :  
You do not need it
Doctor :  
that is an antifungal
User :   i also had a rectal done last week and the doctor saw that all is ok there but there is a (i believe its called) fistulae??? like a little cut causing bleegin
User :   and they gave me betameth mixed with nyastin
User :   100GM Bethameth Cr 0.1% and Nyastin Cr AA
Doctor :  
Ok that is fine
User :   i can use that one?
Doctor :  
You can use that for two days and see the change
Doctor :  
but if it does not work then stop it
Doctor :  
I guess the Lactocalamine is the best one for you to stop itching
User :   the itch is really not that pronounced
User :   doctor tell me the truth
User :   what are the odds of contracting HIV
User :   through vaginal sex
User :   im completely freaked out
Doctor :  
There are good chances of contracting HIV thru vaginal sex, if unprotected sex
Doctor :  
The chances are 10 % of time
