Engaged in risky sexual activity 4 days ago. Have experienced itchy genitals since then. Yesterday I noticed a swollen lymph node (and a smaller bump near it). Today I noticed that I have a rash / cut of some sort on the under side of my genital area. Please see attached images for further information. Please let me know my STI / STD risk. Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Little more about the risk.

Detailed Answer:
Hello sir and welcome.
Need some more detail:
What exact you mean by a risky exposure? Was she HIV pos/Commercial sex worker?
Was it unprotected?
All the blackening, rashes and the cuts which are there in picture were all due to fungal infection. Apply any antifungal powder and keep the area dry. Improve your genital hygiene. Change underwears frequently. You will be alright for that.

Hope to listen from you soon.
My best wishes and prayers are with you, live healthy and happy.

Was protected sex with a sex worker in a country where this is legal. Her saliva however was applied on my genitals after the condom was taken off. Please advise next steps.

Brief Answer:
Very less chance of transmission of HIV.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome once again.
Try to know her HIV status. If she is negative, nothing to worry. If she is positive, then also the chances of you becoming positive will be very negligible, because saliva is a very inefficient media for transmission.

But my best advice will be to always do safest sex, if you are really soo much concerned about HIV diseases.

Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions or queries you still have, I am here to help you till you have reached satisfaction. Have a nice day.

Good day. I have noticed a strongish smell after urinating. The pharmacist said its either a fungal or bacterial infection. Diflucan was suggested, but that would only sort out a fungal infection not a bacterial?? i had been on antibiotics a while ago and my life is very stressful right now due to my mother being ill. In the past I would use Diflucan after antibiotics to get rid of the candida which antibiotics cause. NOw there is only a smell of the urine but no actual discharge.

I have a dermatology issue. The skin on my fingers crack. I live in Maine and have suffered from chap fingers all my life. But now it seems to affect my thumbs. During the year, when my hands are clear. A calous will appear. And the skin will peal, and the layers of skin will continue till they eventually bleed. Right now both thumbs are affected. I thought it might be a fungal infection. It could be a contact alegy? The only relief I get is by using tape. Help?
