Alright so I have a girlfriend of like 4 months and we have sex fairly often, mostly unprotected but she's clean. Anyway I had sex with her earlier this week a few times. Last night I had sex with another girl twice and then tonight I notice these red dots on my penis and scrotum. The dots are only on the right side of my shaft and the front part of my scrotum. They are tiny, like the side of the "O" key on your keyboard and they aren't raised and are just red. They are pretty uncomfortable though kinda itchy but I think thats cause I've been sweating in my boxers and they are bunching up and it feels like thats irritating them cause right now. I really hope they aren't any STD, any ideas? I'm going to go get checked tomorrow but I am really freaking out.

  • Alright... I'm fairly sure if you seem confident that anyone you've been with is clean... and also how quickly the red spots came after your sexual stint - they are just broken capillaries. Capillaries are so small that too much sex, or too rough of sex or anything at all that might put a lot of pressure on the penis, will burst these tiny veins.... When they do break open, they look like little red spots (not raised, not itchy in my experience), and they were gone in about 4 days after I noticed them... I wouldn't panic if it takes longer for them to disappear though, however, you'll likely notice them fading. Just a little check to see if this is most likely what it is... if you sort of stretch the skin around them... you'll see the actually capillary leading into the red spot... after i noticed this, i knew that's all it was. Keep in mind, I am not a doctor, and the best advice anyone could ever give anyone is go to see someone if they have any concerns.
