Good Afternoon,

I recently had unprotected sex with a girl around December or so. Up until now I have had no symptoms, but recently within the last month or so, every once in a while, it burns when urinating. Also, I've noticed that I have dry, flaky skin on the shaft and head of my penis with a small red patch on the shaft as well. The patch isn't painful or itchy. I have looked online and have heard that it may be eczema, which wouldn't be a surprise considering I have slight eczema on my arms and legs. But, as everyone else does, I have read many posts and blogs and have worried myself. I understand that nothing is certain without proper diagnosis from an MD, but I would like some help until I get tested. To recap, my symptoms are:
-dry, flaky skin
-small red patch on shaft
-a single red lump sort of resembling a black head on shaft
-some redness around opening of penis
Any information will help calm my nerves until I get an appointment set up.

Thank you,
Worried College Student

Hi,
1. could be a fungal infection from a change in your skins Ph from the unprotected sex.
2. red patch could also be fungal
3. single red bump could be a pimple or even herpes.
4. redness around the opening could be fungal as well
If your having burning while urinating you may have picked up an std but you should also have a white discharge.
Like you said only testing would confirm.
