After seeing the photos and from your history I think it is an allergic reaction. Allergy in this particular region occurs in following conditions.
- Using a new brand of condom.
- If your partner has any type of sexually transmitted disease.
- If the water you bath with a water which is contaminated.
- If you have taken paracetamol or other painkillers.
- In rare case, if you have taken antiworm drug recently, the toxin released by the worms may lead to such manifestation.

You have to do the following
1. Take cetrizine group of drug which you were taking previously.
2. Take doxycycline group of drug. Consult your doctor for dose distribution.
3. Avoid the abovementioned things.
4. If your partner has any vaginal discharge, she should be treated for that.
5. If you are using new brand of condom, change it to the previous one.
6. If it does not get over within 15 days then consult with dermatologist for further management.

Hope, this information suffices. Let me know if you have any more question.

Thank you for writing back.
If you have not participated in any sexual activity, then you need not to take any antibiotics. Because there is no chance of any Sexually transmitted disease or condom allergy.
Just continue the cetrizine 5 mg tablet before going to bed. If required, you can take maximum two tablets a day.
Avoid the water. If there is no other option, try to use warm water.

If you have your answers, then close this discussion.
