Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
Appearance of lesions 33 days after an unprotected sex are unlikely. The red spots you are seeing are most likely due to secondary to infection or may be balanitis.
A direct examination by a dermatologist is required for the diagnosis and further treatment. Applying a hydrocortisone ointment might be helpful.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Regards,
Dr. Rakhi Tayal
