this sounds more like a yeast/fungal infection than any std. since you had unprotected sex, you can follow up with proper testing at the proper times. you can test for trich, ngu, chlamydia and gonorrhea any time after 1 week post encounter. syphilis after 6 weeks. herpes, hiv and hepatitis after 3 months post encounter. just make sure all the testing you had done was done at the proper times ( obviously it wasn't if it's only been 2 months ) and repeat any testing done too early at the proper times.
Hi grace thanks for your reply. Since Sunday I started taking fluconazole and using lamisil cream for fungal infection. It seems to be working on my penis head, but my groin rash is getting worse and spread to my pubic hair, and my armpits developed a pretty bad visible rash. I'm still getting pain in my groin/prostate/penis that's is like a deep throb and still getting headaches. Any other insight/ advice? my tests came back negative but as u say I need to go back in another month for HIV and hepatitis testing. I'm guessing/ hoping from my internet research that I just have a fungal infection, and stress and lack of use is causing some symptoms like prostatitis, and stress is causing my headaches and making me overtired...in your experience can penis and prostate pain be the result of fungal infections or stress? Does a underarm and groin rash indicate anything to u?
it's only tuesday. give it a full week and if it isn't better, see your provider again.
I wanted to ask you about the symptoms I currently have, and what I should ask the doctor about and what tests a d exams I should get.
I still have dull pain in the penis and prostate which can become sharp and throbbing occasionally. I have one small red round, flat bump on the underside of my glans which has been there throughout and sometimes seems to be where the throbbing pain is located. I used to have a flat red rash in my groin, but I took flucomiozone( yeast infection pill) and it cleared up but is replaced by several small raised red pimples on my thigh lower abdomen and groin, I picked at one of them and it scanned over. I have way more. Umps than usual in the whole region, and a rash in my armpits. I get pretty bad headaches dull and almost all day, sometimes sharp and throbbing. Currently I am worried about HIV, hsv
Hpv, and yeast infection but I guess it could be anything. I forgot to mention my glans and the underside of my foreskin gets red and swollen sometimes, with some red spots and one part that looks raised up and rippley.
So I'm going to the doctor Wednesday and I'm just wondering what I should get swabbed, I know I need a HIV test which is my biggest concern, is there a particular type of HIV test to request? it has now been 3 months since exposure. and what about urine test etc... Thanks for everything, your advice has been really helpful.
going to your regular provider for an exam is a good idea. they can order some basic urine testing, do a manual exam of your prostate and also look at your rash.
