  • He probably didnt use a condom, it is probably a fungal infection, may go away on it's own or he may need some anti fungal cream, the doc can prescribe some with Cortizone 2%, which works very well.If you have had Herpes in the genital area, he may now have it if there was no protection used. Best thing to do is stay calm, look at the symptoms, if there are no open sores comming out in the next week then its a fungal infection.

  • You don't really know. you could have had herpes and you didn't know. Now you both need blood work for herpes 2, IgM and IgG..

  • Okay, the primary question here would be when did the rash develop? If it appeared within a day or so after the event, then STDs are highly improbable because they require an incubation period of several weeks before expression in the form of rashes and other symptoms. If it has been 4 to 6 weeks since the initial contact, then testing for STDs should commence. If the rash was soon apparent the following day or so, then the likelihood here is a bacterial infection. As physicians, we've seen and heard it all so you should suggest to your boyfriend that he lose the inhibition routine and have the problem evaluated and treated before complications make for an embarassing venture. He can rest assured something so sublime won't qualify as the topic of the day. Best regards, J Cottle, MD

  • Very incorrect information about 4-6 weeks; herpes can occur at 3 days after exposure or longer. These doctors disagree: http://www.emedicinehealth.com/genital_herpes/page2_em.htm eMedicineHealth is a first aid and consumer health information site written by physicians for patients and consumers.
