I've been having anal sex but without proper lubrication and I got tears in my anus so I put Neosporin in my anus too protect from infection this ok?

Be careful: Neosporin is probably okay for this, but I would add soaking in warm water with epsom salts and increasing your fluid and fiber intake.

I don't have to tell you to practice safe sex and use adequate lubrication in the future, but I will anyway. Please take care of yourself. Those tears increase your risk of sexually transmitted disease. ...Read more

I had protected anal sex but I have this tear around my anus. What do I need to do to keep from getting HIV or an infection.?

I had protected anal sex but I have this tear around my anus. What do I need to do to keep from getting HIV or an infection.?

Stay protected: I take it that you mean by the word protected that you are using condom. It gives you decent but not complete level protection against hiv. Anal tear however is likely to get infected by stool bacteria. Would see a doctor for evaluation and antibiotics. Cannot rule out that what you call a tear is actually herpes ulcers from earlier exposure that is just deactivating on you now. ...Read more

Anti-fungal creams: Assuming your diagnosis of a fungal infection is correct, this can be treated using any number of anti-fungal creams (lamisil (terbinafine) at, lotrimin, etc.) I generally suggest using these creams "twice as long" as you think you need them (i.e. Keep using it even when the symptoms are gone). If there is no improvement, best to see your family doctor or dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis. ...Read more

Why does my anus & vagina smell & taste musty sometimes? I shower at least 2X/Daily. Could I have an internal infection in my body? P.S. I am a virgin

"Musty, butsy": On a serious note, there could be a vaginal bacterial infection if the "musty" smells more like "fishy". A MD can check that out for you in their office. On the other hand too frequent washing can create "issues". Moreover, there is a reason that the Great Creator placed your nose forward, up and opposite the anus, so we wouldn't spend a lot of time noting its' normal odors. ...Read more
