If you had unprotected sex, get tested for all STD's (but it can take 8 weeks from the time of the sore for the syphilis test to be positive) and an exam. They may treat you without waiting for the results, especially if your partner was male. Also get tested for HIV- everyone should know their status. ...Read more

Hi I just noticed that before the head of the penis I have these red small rashes. They are not bumps, you can't feel a bump when you touch it?

If any doubt, go to see an expert in the field.

Best luck... ...Read more
