Nope: Sounds like you have cleaned everything up well, and I cannot imagine residual sperm being present after all that cleaning

Several Options: If you recentry injured the area of concern, then a tendon injury is possible. If not. You could have developed a ganglion cyst which tends to be common in the wrist and hand. I would have a physician examine it to find out what would be the next step.

A 21-year-old male asked:

Is it bad if I sometimes feel pain on the right side of my body when I run and sometimes when I walk? Sometimes its on my left side. Is this bad?

Maybe, maybe not: If a person is "out of shape" due to not exercising recently, then getting some muscle aches or cramps with running or walking isn't bad. With stretching, massage, and a gradual increase in exercises, the symptoms should go away. If symptoms persist or are worrisome, a primary care doctor should evaluate to see if there is a disease or disorder that is causing the pains.

Doc needs to examine: Many skin conditions are difficult to diagnose without being seen. Some preventive measures: take warm showers (hot ones strip natural oils; baths do likewise); moisturize immediately after shower; if in sun or wind, moisturize & use sunblock; avoid strong soaps/body washes.

Doubtful: Group b strep infection in newborn, typically acquired from colonized birth canal, can be serious. Pregnant mother should receive penicillin. Don't fool around. Garlic used to be hung around the neck to ward off bad germs & spirit in the medieval era.
