A lot of people get a burning'ish and tingly sensation in their buttocks, thighs, and groin area before and HSV2 outbreak. Most say it's pretty unmistakable. I would think that you just have some sort of lasting skin irritation from the encounter. (like yeast or some sort of eczema . Try some soap with Tea Tree Oil in it, take cooler showers, wear boxers for a while and see what happens. I get something similar when I get oral (right around the glans rim and these things work great).
This doesn't sound at all like syphilis or herpes going on. It's most likely either irritation or a fungal infection. Best thing to do is to be seen again if you haven't in the last 2 weeks. Another option is to just pick up an otc jock itch cream and just apply it twice a day for a week. should your symptoms get worse or the cream not make any difference, be sure to follow up with a dermatologist.
It's really good to see you here again!!!! Welcome back!!
Hi grace. Thank you for writing back to me. Glad to hear that you don't think that it is herpes or syphilis as ov been extremely worried for the last 2 months! I have been using timodine for the last 2 days and it seems to be working a bit. It's taking the redness away from my penis slightly. Is this a good cream to use? I'm getting seen again on Thursday. Do you think I should get tested for herpes?
Thanks for getting back to me cris01us. Could the skin irritaion or yeast last 2 months though?
It's hard to say but I agree this is not an std of any kind.
Why has my penis been red for so long? Can I still have sex?
I can't say with any level of certainty why it's red. I hink it's
Time to see a dermatologist.
