See doctor: It is hard to tell what you may have based on the description. One condition to be considered is scabies but it is impossible to provide you a diagnosis based on the information given. (Any contact with a new sexual partner in the past few weeks?)

See your doctor: make an appointment with your PCP for a checkup and lab testing for STDs.
