No risk, no worry: Probably only a few minutes, i.e. when the infected fluid dries. But it doesn't matter, really. Gonorrhea and other STDs are never caught from a contaminated environment.

No - different area: Gonorrhea in men usually causes a urethritis - which is an infection of the urethra, which is 'inside' the penis - not on the outside.

I suggest you see an ID doc- those doctors specialize in this kind of thing. Take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
