Hello. Male. Recent Trip To Thailand. Had Sex With A
Hello, I'm Dr. Branch, thanks for using Ask a Doctor. First, I can tell you that your symptoms would not be consistent with HIV infection from this exposure, because it takes two to four weeks for you to develop symptoms from HIV after being infected. That being said, with the tingling in your penis and your exposure, I would definitely, definitely get tested for STDs, including HIV, because often there are no symptoms.
As for the rash, it sounds like it could be from many things, nothing specific comes to mind. Is the rash itchy? Would you be able to take a picture of it and send it?
There should beon the right side of your screen where you can upload pictures. You can mail the images to YYYY@YYYY to my attention. Once I see the pictures I will get back to you with what I think.
Unclear, but worth getting tested for STDs.
The rash doesn't really clearly look like anything specific. However, especially with that one lesion on the palm of your hand, I would be concerned about syphilis or even HIV, and again, I would get tested. Other things that it could possibly be would be scabies or insect bites (have you been around a lot of mosquitos?), especially if the rash is very itchy.
Let me know if you have any other questions, I’d be happy to help.
