Question: I have a rash on the folds of my skin around the scrotum for the last 3weeks. Last week I had a bout of diarahea and developed redness and burning which radiated to my groin scrotum and penis. I tried using tin actin, lotramin, and powders. It seemed to help but is not going away. I am freaking because I had unprotected oral sex a few times about two weeks prior to this. Currently I developed a pimple right on the top of my ass crack it hurts like hell and looks to have pus. i had a Std test (blood and urine) in the beginning of November results were positive for type 1 hsv and the rest was negative. Do I need another std test? I plan to see my doctor in the next few days. It doesn't look like any hsv 2 pictures I been looking at but it is freaking me out

Hi,
Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks for your query.
I went through your detailed history.
I will try to answer to the point.
1. The rashes fit in more with fungal infection (yeast) and should clear with ANTI-FUNGAL CREME OR OINTMENT( MICONOZOLE for example).
2. The pimple looks like a boil/furuncle and needs antibiotics/ if not responding may need drainage.
Neither of them fits with STI/STD, but anyway HIV test is needed.
The pimple may require you to go to the A&E asap.
Best regards
DR GS

About a week a a few days ago I had unprotected sex with my girl who has been very faithful. 2 or 3 weeks before I ve had unprotected sex with 2 others but both of them were and still are clean. About a week ago I noticed a red bump on the bottom right of the base of my penis. Almost on my scrotum but still on my penis, kind of weird feelings started to begin in my scrotym but it s not too noticeable. Days later other bumps and lesions started around my genital area so I went to urgent care. The doctor said it didn t look like herpes or an std and said it was pimple and prescribed me doxy and zinc oxide. The creams been working and the bumps are starting to diss appear a little the past couple of days but I still have scares. The day after the doctor a cold sore formed on my lip. I ve had cold sores before so I thought maybe bacteria from down there just spread to my lip and created one. My girl started getting itchy bumps on the back of her legs the day after we had sex but none of them in or on her vagina and none of them itched up there she said. None of my bumps itched but they now feel a little weird but I think it s because there s healing. When we had sex it was for about an hour and a half and was really sweaty which can cause a rash and other things. No pain when I pee and no muscle aches really.What could this be?
