Go see your PCP: Rashs could mean std's, autoimmune disease, allergic reactions, etc. You need to go see your doctor asap. If this is an std, you may need medicine to treat it and you certainly would want to inform any sexual partners about what is going on and if your not using it now, start using condoms to protect yourself and everyone else. Hope this helps.
