red bumps on arm

Hello everyone, just have a quick question/concern. Last week I went to a massage parlour and recieved oral and a handjob. I noticed this morning about 15 small red hives on my left forearm. They dont itch at all and noticed them forming yesterday. Just wondering if this could possibly be related to any sort of STD. thanks

It is a possibility, especially in the summer. Does these bumps, by chance, have hairs coming out of them? If so, this may be a case of folliculitis, inflammed hair follicles as bumps with a hair coming out of them or on them. Climate is a suspect in this case.

this isn't likely to be a std on your arm.

many things can cause rashes. if you are concerned, see your provider.

Hey, yeah a few of them do have hairs coming out of them. It's mostly centralized on my left forearm. They basically look like small pimples. Plus, I've gotten an insane tan and basically went 10 shades darker over the past 2 months. 8 hours a day in the 30+ degree C weather haha. There are a few individual bumps on my other arm and leg but really small. Also, I work with pesticides so possibly inhalation of chemicals of some sort, even though they aren't meant to be harmful to humans. Thanks

why would I make a sarcastic common about a rash on the arms not likely to be a std?  you came here for factual information. If you'd like sarcasm though, I can gladly give you a few paragraphs of it.


usually std related rashes are on the genital area, not on the arms. Many things can cause rashes on the arms hence the recommendation to see your provider.
