Yeast or eczema: You probably have a yeast infection or eczema that gets aggravated with sex. Try Cortaid twice a day for 1 week. If that doesn't help, try Lamisil (terbinafine) cream twice a day for another week. If that doesn't help, see your dermatologist.

The bumps need to be looked at for a proper diagnosis. Both you and your partner need STD screen.

These are questions: you need to ask YOUR surgeon as every patient is different and it is based on the experience and techniques of the surgeon performing the procedure. There is no set answer.
