i got extremely intoxicated at a party last night and woke up with this. its possibly something from the grass cause i was laying in the lawn but i have this like all over, one on my stomache, couple on legs, couple on back, one on arm. probably about 15 of them, under the skin, not raised at all, doesn't itch, doesn't hurt, basically just there

as for the rest of my well being, unrelated, i may have a slight urinary tract infection, i have mild itching on and off throughout the day in my urethra, no other exterior itching or anything though, and no lesions or discharge or discomfort or burning or pain or anything like that in the genital or pelvic area, although my left testical feels kind of odd this morning but no bumps or anything on it.

just wondering if this might be a reaction to the alcohol or perhaps a reaction to the grass or maybe somehow related to the itching in my urethra and whatnot? i have had sex with several partners since i got back from afghanistan in april and i wasn't always smart enough to put on a condom. pretty sure i don't have an std though but i have appt for std test this monday, that was for the urethral itching, but i'm also now wondering about these spots i woke up with this morning. please get back to me.

  • okay, upon further review, some of the marks actually are becoming raised now. they do not itch or hurt or anything like that but now they no longer look like red bruises and they are actually becoming raised at this point almost like chickenpox but some are larger and not perfectly round and there is no itching or discomfort involved (for the time being i suppose). also, i've already had chicken pox anyway.

  • Be sure and ask for a blood test for syphillis and herpes 2 when you see the doctor. A full body rash could indicate a stage in syphillis. It could just be the grass/pesticide reaction but with your history, you need the blood work. You could have a few different things going on. You also need a full STD screening, especially chlamydia
