So I just noticed a bump on the side of the shaft of my penis. It's sensitive to the touch, as some pimples are when they first appear. But herpes can also be this way, if I'm not mistaken. Anyway, it's just one single bump. It looks like this actually, which is a pimple: ...

I've had an on-going case of minor to moderate oral thrush on the tongue. It's nowhere else in the mouth. Just the tongue. I read that most commonly, adults with thrush get it because they have a weakened immune system, with one obvious cause for that being HIV/AIDS. Now, I was last tested negative at the at the very least 21 weeks. Is it possible I...

I just wanted to update you on my condition. I've been eating yogurt lately, since I read the probiotics in the yogurt help with oral thrush and am glad to say it actually has helped. I've only eaten it for like the last week and already it's cleared most of the thrush. It was covering most of the tongue and now there's barely any left.

No. Can't say I do.

So I've pretty much always had minor thrush on my tongue for as long as I can remember. Going by what causes I've read about, I don't have any cause. HIV is a cause, but I've been tested well beyond the conclusive mark, so I don't have that. Antibiotic medicines are a cause, but I don't even know the last time I've ever take...

I know for some people, it can take longer than three months to test accurately. I just wonder what determines whether or not someone should test after three months? I just wonder, because I took one test at an unsure number of weeks after one possible exposure. It was likely that it was indeed at least three months, but I wasn't 100%. That test was n...

I just wonder, because when I was getting tested for HIV a few weeks back, afterwards, the doctor told me I could come in for an HPV vaccination with Gardasil (sp?). Last I heard, there was no definite vaccine for men. Has this changed?

For I don't even know how long (probably many months), I've noticed a small area on my inner thigh that had been itchy from time to time and it also left a slightly darker color of skin, kind of like a mild bruise, but not quite the color of a bruise. The area has gotten more reddish and it still itches from time to time. The area is circular, about...

I've been tested twice before and then after a couple other sessions of just oral sex with men (which isn't even a risk, as everyone on this site states), I tested again just to put my mind at ease. Needless to say, the results were negative for both the Unigold Rapid test AND a back-up lab test they did as well, (I requested the second test, just b...

I don't know why I needed to ask. I guess it was just needed for me. Thanks.
