Topical antifungal

Questions and answers on "Topical antifungal"

I had a protected intercourse(condom-latex with no breakage )with a hooker on 1st January,2015 and after 4-5 days there is a single,small, thin,dry but not always ,round but not clear shape,not pimple type,no puss or wart on the head of my penis. The area is not red all the time but after touching and rubbing violently it becomes a bit bright.I dont have any weakness, nor any burning sensation during passing urine nor there is any itching in the area or any secretion from penis. I have a tight fore-skin also.Its now almost a month now and i am afraid i have contacted any STD.
