Hello. 4 days ago on Saturday I had protected oral sex with a man after oral we tried to have protective anal sex but he could not get inside me . that day an hour later after I brushed my teeth It felt like my throat was swollen I was really scared a day after that It was the same thing but I thought I had a fever I couldn t tell, and a day after that It felt like my lymph nodes on the sides of my neck were swollen I went to the doctors the next day I didn t really get an answer from him I heard him say some like a viral infection of the throat and that s why my throat felt lumpy he prescribed me benzonatate which is really for coughs which I didn t have. a day after that while I was walking through the store I felt just right under my chin and felt this small bump it feels about pea sized and is moveable and a bit tender the one right by it didn t feel sore or big at all (It is today) That night I went to sleep and woke up with just a bit of sweat which is sort of unusual or maybe I just haven t noticed it before. So today I m very terrified! although I have been since day one. I just cant get the idea that It might be HIV out of my head. I don t have a headache or fever but those two small bumps are still there and I still cant tell If the lymph nodes on the side of my neck are swollen although I am getting a shooting pain all the way up to my jaw bone from the nodes. Also today I am wheezy. Every time I breathe in I hear It.

Hi, I have shown no signs of HIV etc and have been with my wife now for over 8 years and we have 2 kids one aged 4 and the other at 2 year old, about 10 years back I had sex with someone with a condom but gave them oral sex and I shouldnt really of as I was unsure of there history. I have been run down recently due to lack of sleep and work and have developed swollen glands and night sweats but they are clearing up after 3 days, My wife had numerous blood tests when she was pregnant and tested negative for HIV, would that mean i am the same, we have had unprotected sex for over 8 years now?? Thanks

If a man has unprotected sex with a woman free of all std s would the normal bacteria in the vagina cause urethritis in the male or would this be very rare?

Dear Sir, I have problem to diagnose my condition. I had an unprotected sexual intercourse and following symptoms developed after 7-10 days: 1. Very light burning sensation while urinating 2. Creamy discharge from penis (after two days discharge become watery and transparent) 3. 4 tiny white spots at the base of the head of penis. 4. Urge to frequently urinate. 5. Itching sensation around anus and tingling inside of penis. Symptoms clearly looked like classical STD - chlamydia or gonorrhea . So I took one dose of cefixime (400mg) and 1g of azithromycin . To be sure I also took 2g of metronidazole . At the same day I took tests (swab for chlamydia and gonorrhea) and to my surprise it came all negative. Sympthoms did not dissapeared and after three days I went to doctor who gave me shot of ceftriaxione and asked to take 500mg of azithromycin daily for 3 days. Even after this symptoms did not disappeared. Burning sensation became a little stronger. Discharge is still present but watery and transparent. What can be a reason for my condition? Are they any other bacterias/diseases that can result in this Kim of inflammation but cannot be cured by above mentioned antibiotics? Symptoms now are present for the last week. Thank you for answer.

Hi...I recently noticed two oval indents on the head of my penis...don't hurt. Now i've been run down the past few weeks so I'm thinking my immune system isn't at it's best. Now i'm constantly feeling the urge to urinate and it slightly hurts when i do. My stomach is a bit upset too and my tongue looks spotty. Since this has occurred my genitals have become quite sensitive and the penis head is slightly it's dry skin. I did some research and it seems like it could be a yeast infection or uti? I probably will schedule an appointment to see my doctor...but do you have any comments or suggestions? I haven't had sex in a couple months FYI

Hi Dr,

I am a 23 year old black South African male. I am uncircumsized and have been diagnosed with gonorrhea before. Last month I went to see a doctor because I suspected that I had an STD again but she said I was clean. Last week I started having a groin lump and two days after that I had what appeared as balanitis. I went to see the doctor again. She gave me an injection that was so painful that it paralyzed my leg for about 20 minutes, 400 mg Cefixime and doxytet.

I have not had sex in about 2 months and my last HIV test came back negative, I did it a month ago. My next door neighbour who specializes in HIV/AIDS in a public hospital suspects that I have an STI. Could this be it?
