Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

Dear Mr XXXXXXX

From The description given the cause of rash is unlikely to be due to sexual encounter. Even then it is needed to completely analyse it. It would be very helpful if you could provide me the following additional information

1. Clinical photograph of the lesions
2. Is there any while passing stools
3. Do you have any urinary symptoms like burning sensation while passing urine?
4. The detail of sexual encounter

Awaiting your response
Take care

2. What do you mean is there any while passing stools?
3. No urinary symptoms or burning sensation. There is no rash but small spots like Lunars keep appearing each day. Brownish/light purple is their color
4. Details of encounter:
Oral sex was unprotected but regular sex was done with protection. It was with a male thats what I'm most concerned with. A couple of days I took a comprehensive STD test and today all came back negative except Herpes 1 which most people have.
1. How can I send you pics through here?
I am freaking out as more spots keep appearing each day. I did go to a dermatologist in Mexico as I live in a bordertown and he said that was normal but how can it be normal when I didnt have those spots before?

Brief Answer:
They are due to blocked skin pores

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Greetings

Those brown spots are nowhere related to sexual exposure. They usually occur due to blocked skin pores associated with itching.

Steam inhalation of the face will be helpful.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.

Take care

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!

So about a month ago i have been getting little red bumps on my legs arms stomach and sometimes down between my legs.. Im worried as to what it could be. I just had a baby in november and was clean from stds but have had unprotected sex since. They are itchy before they appear and then they show up the next day then are gone within a couple hours..

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?
