Brief Answer: Need not worry Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. The lesion you got within few hours of the sexual exposure my not be due to a infection. The lesion could be secondary to friction. I suspect it to be a friction boil burt to form a scab over time. Need not worry, this is harmless and does not cause any complications. If the lesions re-appears then d visit a dermatologist. Regards,
