Question: Hi doctor, i sent in a question few days ago. I went on vocation in hong kong for two weeks, return back to australia, and the temperature in hong kong was cold and in Australia was quiet hot. When i was in HK, i had protected sex with csw. First time finished with Masturbation without condom and kissed on the testicles area. 2nd time were started with protected oral sex then finished with protected vaginal and ejaculated inside a condom which didnt break. 3rd started with a massage, then a quick few mins protected vaginal sex and finished with masturbation with some sort of lotion provided by csw.And the final time was brief protected oral sex then finished with protected ejaculated varginal sex. And it is now 8 days after my last encounter. On the 3 days after the last encounter, i had some clear fluid around my penis, but no white or yellow discharge, however some parts of my body felt itch but no rash at all. On the 5 days, i couldnt see any clear fluid around my penis area, but itch still appear, the last answer i recieved from on the doctor said it could be some sort of skin allegie. Today which would be the 8 days, inhave discovered there are two redish colour bumps on my penis head area, but doesnt look like a pimple type, my penis also look like they have little bit of wrinkles but they are not sore and make me feel discomfort at all. I have been washing my penis very detail each day after my vocation, but i also had a masturbation two nights ago. Either than the two little bumps, my penis area feel normal. I would like to know is it a sign of STD or HIV early symptoms, do you think i should get it check out? Many thanks in advance

Brief Answer:
Not a cause for concern.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone thoroughly through the details provided and I do not think that you need to worry about STDs or HIV. Possibly you have a fungal infection and nothing else. Application of clotrimazole powder topically should help. Usually an allergic component is also involved and so you would benefit from taking some antiallergic like cetirizine once daily for the next few days. I do not think that you need to get tested.

Let me know if I could help further.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing back. Unfortunately there seems to be some problem with the attachment and it is not getting downloaded. Could you please re-upload? Let me assure you that if the label reads clotrimazole, you have got the right medicine. However, I would prefer powder to cream as creams cannot help in keeping the area dry. Nevertheless, creams will have the same medicinal effect.

Brief Answer:
You need not worry.

Detailed Answer:
Dust allergy or mites in dust would not cause STD or HIV. You need not worry about it. You need not bother about the levels of IgE (possibly that is what is found to be raised) unless you have any definite problems. In case you want, you can take Montek LC tablet (monteleukast + levocetirizine) [prescription medicine] once daily for next 10 days or so.

Every 3-4 days, a raised, itchy rash will appear somewhere on my 12 year-old s body. Never in the same place. First it was on buttocks, then hands, forearms another day, shins a few days later. Yesterday it appeared on his wrists, knees and cheeks. It is alleviated in a matter of minutes after administering separate dosages of prednisolone, Zyrtec and Zantac. The hives first appeared May 10 after a day spent in the woods with friends. He may have rubbed a Bounce dryer sheet on his body to deter insects. But the rash will not completely go away and we are almost out of the prescription. Any thoughts?
