STD from 'handjob'

About a week ago, I recieved a "handjob" from a prostitute. I did not do anything else and later that night took a shower washing my penis. Lately, I have been experienceing itching/burning in my genital area, especially on my scrotum. It has even turned red. I also have something that looks like a stretch mark or cut on my inner thigh near my penis. Along with this I have been getting random itches/rashses over my body. Last time I had an itchy scrotum my doctor said it was fungal and prescribed me a cream which I started using recently, but still am feeling itchy. Is it possible that I have contracted an STD? Thank you.

See several other strings with similar questions.  You can't get an STD or any other infection from a hand job.  Your symptoms sound like a fungal infection (yeast or jock itch), not sexually acquired.

Do you think I should go see my regular doctor about this? I also heard that if she had an open cut on her hand and I recieved a cut during the process that I could be exposed to STDS, is that true. Thank you once again.

I wouldn't, but if it will ease your mind, sure.  Most people with suspected jock itch just treat themselves with an OTC product for that purpose, and see a provider if the problem doesn't clear up.  Cuts or not, there was zero chance of STD transmission.

If this is jock itch or fungal, it's ok to have sex right. I won't be spreading it to my partner right. Thanks

no, you cant have sex.  you'll cause your partner to get some horrible disease and then she'll die.  and you better go to the doctor, because if you don't, your penis will fall off.
hah, jk.
sex it up, son!  you're fine!  handjobs = safe
