1 year old suffering from white spots with pus on circumcised penis. What is it ?

My one ur old son ( circumcised) had white spots on his penis. I thought yeast infection. I whipped it away and saw that it was like a pimple type matter so I gently pressed my finger on it and more puss came out. He didn t seem to care at all. A few hrs later I changed his diaper and his penis was very red and it looked like a tear half way around his penis. This is located at the fold of skin just below the head . I was told to keep an eye on it as long as it doesn t get worse it should be fine. But I am concerned. Please give any advice!! Thx

One course of antibiotic and few dressings will solve his problem.

Hiiam male 28 years old. I am from India. I had sex on july 2nd with sex worker. I was the insertive paetner and sh was receptive. Before sex i mastrubated and she found difficulty in putting condom om my penis. With condom we had intercourse which lasted mot more than 3 mins and i did ejaculated. When i took out my penis i found that the confom has been broken. I have enquired about her health and she yold she did not have any issues with her health. After 10 days approx after the exposure i hot some white painless dots all over my penis head. I consulted an hiv specialist and he said it is a fungal infection and gave some antibiotics and fungal cream. He also advise to me to take HIV test at 6 weeks. I did take antibody test at 4 and 5 weeks. I guess it should be the third generation test. Buy 6th week I did HIV p24 and ab ag test and and it came out as negative I have shown the result to the doctor and he told not to worry about HIV anymore. After 2 months I got the white blisters again on my penis it was not it was not severe as the first time. Due to anxiety I did the same hiv p24 and ab ag test at the same lab at 5 months post exposure and the results were non reactive. I I had mild fever after the exposure which does not result more than one day. Also I lost around 3 kgs of my weight and her mouth ulcers for which the doctor told it is due to anxiety. Now it is almost 1 year and I still fear of the infection and my anxiety is getting high. What is the transmission rate for one time exposure for the insertive partner. Also please advise if I need to retake the HIV test or any STD test.

I was diagnosed with HSV-1 in my genital area and since I was diagnosed I have had issues with constipation. Also, the lips of my vagina are pretty red as well and my groin area seems to be red as well. Doctor thought it may be a yeast infection. I have tried stool softeners and ansoul suppositories because of the constipation and hemmrhoids. I also tried nystatin for on the lips of my vagina too.
I'm still having some discomfort around the anus area and havent had a regular bowel movement for some time.

Im also taking daily treatment for the HSV-1. 400 mg of Acyclovir 1 time a day.
Someone, please help me feel back to "normal"
