Needs to see doctor: to be checked. This could be related to an sexually transmitted disease (STD) or could be due to a skin condition. This should be evaluated as soon as possible.

The large majority of genital skin problems are not STDs; probably unrelated to the sexual exposure, just a coincidence of timing.
