was more trashy yesterday but I put Lamasil on it and it 'calmed down' but still like this
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
trashy = rashy
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 8 months ago.

Not much there.

I do see irritation.

A small cyst.

Have your doctor look at it and you probably need to start with an antifungal such as chlortrimazole and a daily scrub with ivory soap.

The irritation should clear up in a week, at least significantly clear up.

If lamisil is working you might have to continue that for up to 10 days or 14 days.

I'm not sure it is not any STD

have you been exposed to any you know of?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Oh yes, I will give a positive rating but does that mean 1 say's no, 1 says could be ? I've never had an STD and wouldn't know if I had been exposed, I was given oral sex by a woman about a week ago but have had no intercourse for quite some time.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
as in 6 months...
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 8 months ago.

Hi

This picture does NOT look like any STD at all.

You can check any picture for warts, herpes or mulloscum, canker sore, etc.

No bearing.

Simply have your doctor look under magnification as I said.

good luck.
