Is a burning sensation in scrotum after shaving a symptom of STD?
No risk of an STD
Hello. Thank you for writing to us
I am Dr. Kakkar (MD, Skin and Sexually transmitted diseases). I have gone through your query and I have noted your concern.
Burning and irritation is most likely due to hair growing back and would automatically subside as the hair would grow longer.
STD's are only transmitted by direct sexual contact either oral, vaginal or anal sex. Condom protected oral sex is absolutely safe and there is no risk of an STD. This is because a condom would have acted as a barrier to direct contact during oral sex and therefore there is no risk.
A handjob is absolutely safe, whether or not it is condom protected and an STD cannot be transmitted through hands.
Any risk of hpv?
Friction from sharp edges; Use a soothing lotion or a mild steroid
It is due to sharp edges of shaved hair rubbing against scrotal skin. You may either avoid shaving altogether Or shave often so that they don't regrow to sufficient lenght to irritate.
You may use a soothing lotion topically e.g calamine lotion or a mild topical steroid e.g cortisone cream, once or twice daily to calm it down
No risk of Hpv
There is no risk of Hpv from these particular acts. Moreover, Hpv is asymtpomatic and does'nt cause irritation.
Incubation period of Hpv to wart formation is variable
Incubation period can vary from days to months after Hpv infection (usually ranging from a few days to 20 months). You are anyways out of the incubation period so just forget about Hpv.
No risk of Hpv
No, there is no risk of you acquiring genital Hpv through these particular acts.
