Hello,

Thanks for your concerns.

Given the fact that she is a new sexual partner and you have lesions that are new, the main concern is that of a sexually transmitted disease: the most common ones in the differential with that description would be herpes and molluscum, but certainly others such as chancroid, syphylis could not be completely ruled out.

The best course of action is stopping sexual activity as you have, going to a clinic to get tested for common sexually transmitted diseases (including HIV) and if there are positive results, have your partner checked and treated if possible.

Adequate use of condoms reduces most sexually transmitted diseases.

Hope that is helpful, wish you the best,
