Genital Itching

Hello,

So I started feeling an itch on the left side of my genitals for the past week and a half, I'm not sure where it's from. I have a girlfriend and have sexual intercourse regularly for the past 4 years. I did however have protected sexual intercourse 5 months ago with someone else.

Can this be an STD? Maybe genital herpes? I'm bit concerned, should I go get tested and what test should I get?

Thanks

Itching is not a sign of a STD. See a Dr maybe a fungial infection.

Go buy some Johnsons baby head to toe body wash, use this for a few days. It's your soap likely, it was for me.
