Hello
Thanks for your query,based on the facts and photographs that you have posted it appears that you have acquired infection of the glans penis (Ballanitis) following unprotected sex .

I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem
1) Do you know the STD status of a woman whom you had sex with ?
2) Do you have urethral discharge ?
3) Do you have have any urinary symptoms like burning , frequency etc?
4) Is there itching of the genitals?

With the fact that it was unprotected sex possibility of acquiring STD or HIV can not be ruled out.

Please get following basic test done to establish diagnosis.
1) Urine routine and Urine culture.
2) Swab test and culture of a fluid from lesion .
3) Screening test for STD and HIV done to be rest assured about acquiring STD or HIV.

Please take broad spectrum antibiotics like Erythromycin along with anti inflammatory medication like Diclofenac twice daily along with topical antibiotic ointment like Neosporin for local application later on switch on to appropriate antibiotic as per culture report.

My answers to all 4 questions are NO. Frequency is normal. I assume the woman as she told me she doesn't have any diseases.

Will you be able to prescribe the medication for me. My pharmacy number is 703-451-1595
My Name is XXXX

I see you are in XXXXXXX Is there a way for you to contact a doctor in US to prescribe the medication for me.

My other question. Why would I get this Ballanitis. Is it from me I have issues or she gave it to me because she may have a yeast infection.

Will it go away soon I hope. How do I prevent getting this again.
