Hi and thanks for the query,STDs usaually do not present in 24 hours so these are most likely friction marks. They will go away in couple of days just keep an eye on them.Let me know if you have further questions.Please do not forget to leave a positive rating by clicking on stars on top right corner.Wish you good health.

I would feel better uploading a pic, since I have not seen this pattern before.

Is the pic consistent with friction marks?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 1 year ago.
This looks like localized inflammation of the glans with some dryness and friction injury, might also be allergic in etiology due to latex (condom) related irritation. However, it can not be an STD, since they do not present in a single day. I suggest that you start on an anti allergic like Loratidine 10mg (OTC) twice a day and apply Fuscidic acid and hydrocortisone (combinaton available OTC) twice a day on the glans.For your own piece of mind, you can get an STD screen done after 7 days post exposure.Please do not forget to leave a positive rating by clicking on stars on top right corner.Wish you good health.
