Can gonorrhea cause sores on skin?

Can gonorrhea cause sores on skin?

Rash and others: Local infection can manifest discharge, bleeding, and difficulty/painful urination. Evidence of infection may be found in the throat or eyes. Sometimes, if not treated quickly enough, the infection can spread to other parts of the body which may manifest as a rash, heart disease, arthritis, and/or confusion.

I've been sick for three days my partner told me he had gonorrhea and I took pills my head and fever won't go away I am cold and hot at the same time?

I've been sick for three days my partner told me he had gonorrhea and I took pills my head and fever won't go away I am cold and hot at the same time?

Shaking chills: You sound quite ill and it may or may not be from gonorrhea, but i would not take the chance. Gonorrhea is quite easily transmitted and you may be experiencing "systemic infection" (infection spreads via blood) and could potentially be fatal. Folks with 1 std often carry others such as hiv/herpes as well. Acute HIV can cause your symptoms too. So, please check in with your doc asap. Good luck. ...Read more

What happens if you give head to someone with an STD like gonorrhea?

What happens if you give head to someone with an STD like gonorrhea?

Infection: You will likely contract an oral std (...Or more than one, gonorrhea & chlamydia are often found together...And increased likelihood for hiv, etc.). About 1/2 get sore throat and/or flu-like symptoms. If worried about this possibility, need to admit it to dr, as routine throat culture often won't "grow" these, and antibiotic selection needs to cover them as well. Nothing wrong w/condom use! ...Read more

I've been tested for gonorrhea, herpes and HIV and the results came back negative. I'm wondering how would i get rid of peeling skin on my penis?

I've been tested for gonorrhea, herpes and HIV and  the results came back negative. I'm wondering how would i get rid of peeling skin on my penis?

Not an STD: Welcome to HealthTap. Thanks for your question. None of these STDs (nor any other) cause "peeling skin". Even if one of your STD tests had been positive, it would not explain this symptom. Any number of non-STD skin conditions could be possible. See a clinic or doctor for professional evaluation. Stay relaxed in the meantime; probably it isn't serious. ...Read more

Any touch on penis head including clothes causes major tingling. Tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia negative. Rapid premature ejaculation. Thoughts?

Any touch on penis head including clothes causes major tingling. Tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia negative. Rapid premature ejaculation. Thoughts?

May be okay...: You're probably okay besides oversensitivity of glans penis which is understandably related with premature ejaculation (pe). To improve pe, take on behavioral modification, apply thin topical anesthetic cream 20-30 minutes before coitus, or add using ssri timely. Detailing? See doc. ...Read more

 I have had gonorrhea but was given a pill n shot by a doctor but have little bumps on the top of the head of my penis and am experiencing legs twitch?

Here are some ...: I'm glad you're treated for gono/?chlamydia timely. So, have the treating Doc take a look at glans penis; meanwhile, keep that area as dry, clean, & ventilated as much as possible + apply antifungal with steroid cream lightly 1-2 x daily for 3-5 days; if recurrent & related with long foreskin, do circumcision. To make you strong, don't overdo masturbation and take on healthy lifestyle ... ...Read more

Can a male who has contracted genital gonorrhea from receiving oral sex, infect a female through oral sex? Or must the infected genital make contact?

Can a male who has contracted genital gonorrhea from receiving oral sex, infect a female through oral sex? Or must the infected genital make contact?

Oral sex which way?: Gonorrhea is only transmitted from the infected site, and it doesn't travel through the body to other places. If you have untreated urethral (penile) gonorrhea and a partner performs oral sex on you, she can acquire oral gonorrhea. You can't give it by performing oral sex. However, you should not be having ANY sex until and unless your gonorrhea has been treated and cured. ...Read more

Can STD's like: AIDs,HPV,Gonorrhea,syphlis transmit through external genital contact and no penetration -no sexual intercourse?

Rarely for some STDs: Thanks for your question. Very low risk for all STDs and zero risk for some. No risk -- at least low enough to be ignored -- for STDs passed by genital fluids (gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV, hepatitis B). STDs that are transmitted skin-to-skin (herpes, HPV, syphilis) could be transmitted, but very rarely even for these. I hope this helps. Stay safe! ...Read more
