I am currently in Thailand and have been struggling with an itchy rash for about 5 weeks now.
I had unprotected sex whilst out here with a fellow traveller (I know stupid) and I noticed I had servere itching after about 2 days or so later around my groin area, so much so I changed my shorts in the night to help it.
When I woke up the next day, I had red bumps all around my Pubic area and on my groin going down all the way to my quads. I also had the rash on my back and on my right elbow and on my left knee.
I went to the doctor and she said she believes it to be bed bugs but now I’m not so sure as it’s taking quite a while to heal.
I have nothing on the penis, no bumbs or anything on the tip either. So I’m hoping that might be a good sign that it’s not herpes.
The rash started off as small red bumps that I could not help but itch, the became small scabs as I itched them, but are slowly fading away. However, it still remains itchy in the groin area, I shaved all my pubes off just incase it was crabs too!
The bumbs are now a colour of my normal skin but slightly redder. I have not really noticed anything too bad about my health whilst I’ve been away. It doesn’t hurt when I **** or have a discharge from my penis.
Appreciate anything that can go on this, as I’m praying I haven’t caught herpes!
Thanks in advance.
