What do I have?

I used a sex toy that was used by someone else before I used it and soon after about a week or so I had what looked like blisters around my anus and along my shaft, as well as my testicles. They're no longer there but now my anus has an unusual odor and when it itches I scratch and there seems to be a dried white substance around my anus....what do I have?

You should have zero risk under this exposure.

you need to be seen monday and get a proper exam done.  this could be many things going on - most of which are bacterial infections.  It's unfortunate that you evidently weren't seen as soon as you noticed symptoms :(

was the sex toy washed before you used it?

Then not a STD related issue

std's are easily killed with soap and water on sex toys. not sure if alcohol degrades the plastic on them or not if it wasn't a glass sex toy.  

don't worry about std's but be seen for bacterial causes of symptoms as well as to rule out a fungal infection. as the plastic on toys degrades over time, these sort of germs can take hold and aren't as easily killed with soap and water :(
