So I had sex with my gf a few weeks ago. Maybe 2 weeks ago. She was a virgin and so was I. Two days ago I started itching at the spot where my thigh and groin connect. It then started spreading to the upper thigh. Last night I felt my butt and I felt a lump. It was red. Looks like a rash. I did a search and I found Psoriasis might be it. I REALLY hope, and doubt that it's herpes because we were both virgins. SO how in the world could it be Herpes. Well anyway they both sound really alike (herpes and psoriasis) Does any one know the difference? I have 2 red clumps on my butt and a tiny pimple (maybe). They are all red. My thigh was sensitive but I never really noticed any significant amount of redness. Just sensitivity. Right now the clumps on my but kind of feel like icyhot. What do you guys think?Thanks in advance.
Herpes OR Psoriasis PLEASE READ!
I just checked closer and it has flakes on it. Like dandruff. They are tiny white spots. Plus I had a troaght problem. Maybe strept trroaht. However you spell it.Doe Herpes have white flakes on it?
Sounds more like some fungal infection. Perhaps even yeast.
Ok, Now I don't know what to do. I already got an appointment with a dermatologist on Mon. but that might be too late. When I was peeing I noticed the same rash starting to develop on my penis. I am circumcized and the rash in on the skin under the head. I think this is called the perineum. So I have it there too, it seem like. And I also found a pimple like thing in my mouth. At the top of my gum. I'M REALLY STARTING TO WORRY. Is there any possibility that this isn't an STI? PLEASE HELP!
Ok...So I found out I have herpes shingles....a form of chicken pox and it should go away in a few weeks. Here is my question. I noticed that my girlfriend had a strong odor from her pubic area, even though she had pants on. I smelled it when I put my nose to her groin and sniffed. Anyway now I'm starting to have that same smell but not as strong. Could this mean that I got the shingles from her? Do shingles stink? What is this odor? Thanks in advance
> Could this mean that I got the shingles from her?
What makes you think she didn't get it from you? Are you saying that you had a shingles outbreak on your penis? I'm not sure if that's even possible.
Roof shingles can have a bad odor, but I've never heard of a human shingles infection causing an odor. (By the way, varicella (chicken pox) and herpes zoster (shingles) are both caused by the varicella zoster virus.) Shingles is, in effect, a second outbreak of chicken pox, which you had at an earlier time; some of the virus remained in your body.
It's much more likely that your girlfriend has a yeast infection, and you may have picked that up from her. If so, you both need to be treated at the same time. The treatment is simple and safe, and available over-the-counter at the pharmacy. Even if it turns out not to have been a yeast infection, the treatment, as I said, is safe.
