Hi--any chance of posting a photo on this page?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
If you can't that's fine. Are you saying these are just red and maybe a little firm but not really blisters?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Sorry will upload photos later on as don't have access from phone.

But it was 3 like red little raised bumps, about 1-2mm in size, seem to have gone except one!

We're sore to touch initially.

The other bit is like a thin film of skin is gone and a sore patch about 7x7mm in size, red raw.

This was after a single sex session.

Thank you for reply

OK Wayne--and we can continue later if you have the photos but this doesn't sound like an STD. This sounds more like either balanitis whoch is a yeast infection or an inflammatory eczema. For now, you could try Lamisil cream three times a day for a week to see if that clears it up and if that doesn't, I'd suggest that you have a doctor look at it

Wayne--that does look very much like a yeast infection. Try the Lamisil cream for a week and see your doctor if that doesn't resolve it
