Okay, well, i had unprotected sex, im not proud of it and i already feel terrible because it was unprotected.

I think i might have gotten an std from it. A few days ago there were small red zit like things around the head of my penis, it looked like a rash at one stage.
But recently i noticed the skin which the red spots was on is actually peeling, as if i have been sunburnt.

Im going to get it checked out soon, im just asking if you can tell me what i could possibly have. If you need more detail just ask.
Thanks [Smile]

The thing is, that could be any number of things, from a couple different STIs -- herpes, genital warts, syphilis or scabies, for example -- to a yeast infection, even just an allergic reaction to something like the washing powder you use for your laundry.

Ultimately, no one who can't really look at your penis in person, and run some tests is going to be able to tell or guess at what's going on, and even if we could, if it is an infection, you'd still have to go and get treated, you know?
