Hello

Thanks for your query. Based on the facts that you have posted, you had protected sex
and now worried about acquiring HIV. Since you have already done the test which turned out to be negative, you should not worry at all. To be free from anxiety you can repeat HIV test after three months.

To comment on what the red bumps could be, it would be easier if you can upload an image of the same here. There is a feature to attach an image on the right side of the query page. It is very unlikely for the bump to be related to your past sexual encounter.

Please feel free if you have any more questions. I shall be pleased to help you.
Thanks with Regards.

Dear Dr. XXXXXXX

Many thank for your response. I attached the photos for you. As I a mentioned before I have occasional mild ache in my pelvic groin area when I wake up or some time at night.
I should mention that the red spots on my forehead are disappeared, except the one which turned into light brown color.

Hello,

Thanks for uploading the photos. The red spots that you have on forehead and forearms looks to be a small micro collection of blood beneath the superficial layer of skin and could be due to allergy and definitely not related to your past sexual encounter and will subside of their own in a week or two. If persists for more than 2 weeks consult qualified Dermatologist for opinion and treatment.

The occasional mild pain that you have in groin could be just due to spasm of the muscle in groin for which you can take any pain killer available over the counter of a medical store. Please feel free to ask if you have any more queries. I shall try to address the same.

Thanks with Regards.
Dr.Patil.

I'm a 22 year old male about 165 lbs. I've recently had unprotected sex with my girlfriend although i'm not sure of her sexual history. On the top of my penis under the head I have a small patch that looks like a rash and when I pull it to look closer I see small cuts like paper cuts on it. A friend told me it may be from friction but I think I need to get tested. Can anyone help?

A while back a tore my frenulum during intercourse, i have had sex since and it was sore but not as bad, the first time it happened (tore) i had a sharp pain but carried on only to notice what had happened when i saw a small amount of blood in the semen in the condom and there was no more blood only soreness, i can retract my foreskin fully but can be sore if i did it whilst erect, i can see no scarring but looks healed and the tear looks to have rejoined, help please as i am insecure in-case it happens again.
