Irritant contact dermatitis , likely

Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Topical hydrocorisone cream and oral tablet avil ( pheniramine maleate ) which is an anti histamine should be advised in consultation with your doctor. If the contact dermatitis associated with poison ivy responds to this treatment then its unlikely to be the STD i.e responsible for the current symptoms. To be on the safe side you can request an STD panel including HIV to be more sure about your STD status. I would advise to practice safe sex by using barrier contraceptives in the future.


Wishing you best of health

Thanks
