Hey everyone...I'm new here and this is my 1st post. My problem is this..

I have an itchy red patch of skin on the right side/under side, foreskin, and a little on the head of my penis (mostly around the hole) It looks alot like jock itch. There is no pain to it, but it itches like ***l. The reason I ask this is I have two reason to think it might be something..

The 1st (Hoping this is it) Jock Itch - Last Monday I went swimming at a warm water lake. I was wearing your standard mesh underwear swim trunks. I was in the water around an hour and drove home with them on about 15 minute drive. I showered with an hour of having the trunks off. Also I went swimming at a local pool last Tuesday, wearing the same sort of trunks. I swam around 2 hours in the pool. I also wore the trunks around an hour after swimming. I didn't shower until about 2 - 3 hours after swimming.

The 2nd (Hoping it's not it!) STD - A girl gave me unprotected oral sex Thursday July 19th (10 days ago).

The only thing that is making me go towards jock itch, other than obviously wanting it to be, is it didn't start to itch until Thursday July 26th (A week after the oral sex). I was fine for that whole week.

The rash is red and mostly on the right shaft, foreskin, and head of the penis in spots. There are no bumps or sores. It just itches and when it gets irritated in get enflamed and swells.

If any of you could help me...I would appreciate it greatly!

  • Herpes looks just like jock itch. You better get two blood tests: herpes 1 and herpes 2...not the combo, but two separate. Ask her if she gets fever blisters. It doesn't matter. You could have had it for a long time, but if it is new, it will come back IGM...meaning she gave it to you...if you've had it awhile, it will come back IGG. Be sure and take these notes to your doctor; he can go over it with you.If not herpes, maybe yeast, but you must find out and educate yourself. It's probably gone by now...but it will be back...

  • bECAUSE OF AN UNUSUALLY dry summer in some places, water levels are low and the frequent sunlight has increased algae and some toxic water conditions. I seen on the news the other night a warning not to swim in one large reservoir here in Indiana and to be sure to wash well if you do. Toxic blue green algae was the reason stated.Lake water is not and cannot be filtered. Water levels will have to increase. consrve and pray for rain.:)
