Hello Dr. normally I wouldn't think much of this incident.
So several weeks ago I got couple of lapdances (please don't dismiss this case). This time she left a spot of menstrual blood on my pants that went thru the other side. That freaked me out and messed up my sleeping for that night. Next day I had some burn sensation when I starting to pee for the next 2 days as well as discomfort in my abdomen. I can attribute my abdomen discomfort to being nervous wreck, but not sure what caused the pee burn, but that just got better on its own after 2 days.
Two weeks later I got very mild sore throat on one side that lasted a week, but it was so mild, most of time I hardly felt it. I don't know if that was just some weird post-nasal drip or the crazy hot weather that time. But no fever or any other ARS symptom. I know it wasn't covid (I tested for that)
Then maybe 33 days later I got a rash on my stomach, slightly to left and above my belly button. It's red/pink about inch wide and maybe half-inch tall. Sometimes it itches, but most of the time it doesn't. It may have a millimeter size bump in the middle (but hard to say, it's not obvious).
It almost looks like dry skin rash since as it seem to parallel my stomach folds (but is not inside my stomach skin fold). It's not winter time in a dry air home. (And for dry skin stomach rash, I'd normally get more than one)
The rash was worse 2nd day (seem to grow). But after trying not to scratch it and washing with soap and cold water, it seems to get better on this 3rd day (but i don't know for sure). It makes me wonder if it's an ARS rash. I don't seem to have any other symptoms
I know it's been said no penetration, no HIV so that makes me feel better. But thinking back to the pee burning, the very mild sore throat and now this rash has got my anxiety going.
1. Is there any explanation to the pee burn? I thought maybe I got a UTI from the mess of ejaculation in my pants with semi rough dances. I'm a male (I just don't think lapdances could ever do that, but I've had a UTI before). I also wonder even if it's a UTI does it matter, since I'm told a UTI is from my own bacteria so if it were a UTI then no way does it come from the dancer? I don't even know if pee burn can come from anxiety.
2. The rash I don't understand it. Does it sound like ARS rash.
3. I plan on doing a 4th gen rapid finger prick test, 1 day shy of 6weeks. Do I even need to?
