Maybe: If you are sexually active & may have been exposed to a STD a simple screening is always a good idea. Chlamydia & gonorrhea both can have few if any symptoms in patients of either gender & mild symptoms as noted may be present. The outlet can also be irritated by some skin germs that would cause the same pattern. The only way to know would be to get it checked out.
