Question: I had protected sex with a sex worker 5 days ago. She brought the condom in the room and I didn't see her take it out of wrapper so I assume it's reused? She gave me oral sex with condom, then we had sex with condom. It lasted about 5 minutes. When done she took condom off and gave me hot towel. It's been 5 days and last night I woke up because the tip of my penis was itching really bad. It went away a few minutes after I woke up. I did get a couple of hand jobs yesterday and didn't wash up before I went to sleep. I have no other symptoms of anything. Am I at risk for something?

Brief Answer:
Protected sex

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

It is unlikely that the condom was reused as it loses its elasticity after one use. The itch what you had last night is not related to the protected sex you had 5 days ago, it could be just a local irritation which subsided on its own.
Since you had protected sex you are not at risk of developing a sexually transmitted disease.
Please wash up after sexual contact, including a hand job to avoid infections from next time.

I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me

I wish you good health and a speedy recovery

Antihistamines

Hello

Thanks for getting back

If the itching is severe I advice you to take Tab Levocetrizine which is a third generation antihistaminic agent once a day at night after food. Applying calamine lotion locally will provide instant relief.

Hi, I'm male, 30 yrs old and recently had unprotected sex with a girl i don't really know. As soon as the next day I noticed that my penis head was blotchy and red but without any pain or itching. There are no sores or blisters. This was now 4 days ago and there has been very litlle to no change in the symptoms. I have showered a couple of times and not used any creams or lotions. All the research I have done online suggests that it is very unlikely that these are the symptoms of a sexually transmitted disease but I am still very worried that I may have caught something, especially as I would not want to infect anyone else. Please help!

I have been experiencing cold-like symptoms for the last few days. My father had the same symptoms and was better after four or so days. Today, however, I noticed that my stool color was a clayish white accompanied with moderate abdominal pain on my right side. Is this cause for concern?

Additional information. I have been drinking plenty of fluids (water and gatorade with the occasional soda) and haven't had any dietary changes. I have been taking vitamin C tablets, Sudafed, and Nyquil. I was in the Bahamas three weeks ago. I have had intercourse with only my girlfriend in the last year, prior to I had been tested for hepatitis and other STDs, all of which came back negative. I also chew tobacco regularly.

Hi. I am a 20 year old female. I was recently treated for a UTI which lead me to have a yeast infection. I since have been treated for both. I was also tested for STDs, as I am very afraid of them- twice. All results were negative both times. I am still having a burning sensation however and having some pain on the left side close to where the back side of the pelvis bone is if that makes sense. I never get this pain on my right side and it more of a dull, throbbing pain. The doctor said my lymph nodes were fine and I'm going to get checked again next week- just wondering if you had any ideas?
