Can herpes cause balanitis for over 3 weeks? I tested negative for all stds and wa s just wondering. Maybe I have a yeast infection from my girlfriend b/c she had thrush with no pain. I've noticed that I had a redness around forskin like ring shaped

Not herpes: No herpes outbreak is likely to last 3 weeks, it's an uncommon cause of balanitis. If herpes were the cause, it would be in the form of open sores, generally very painful. Yeast indeed can cause balanitis. Maybe share your gf's anti-yeast cream (or buy clotrimazole cream over the counter). Also retract foreskin and wash w/ soap and water 2-3 times a day. See a doctor if these don't help. ...Read more

After yeast medicine yellowish brown discharge and bleeding. Been tested for STD came out negative. Why is this happening?

See a doctor ASAP for testing. Good luck! ...Read more

I have a big bump on my vulva. I test negative for std's HPV and yeast. What could this be. It smells bad too. Please help.

Cyst or abscess: "Smells bad" implies there is drainage, right? This sounds like some sort of cyst or abscess -- maybe just a skin boil if involving your labia major, or Bartholin's gland infection if near the vaginal opening, or others. It may need an incision to drain pus, an antibiotic, or both. See your doctor right away. ...Read more

Trich? BV?: With "all STD tests negative", still ask your doctor if you had the newer trichomonas DNA test, much more accurate than older tests but not always done. Also ask about bacterial vaginosis (although BV doesn't usually cause colored discharge). Other non-STD vaginal infections also are possible. If your doc can't work it out, ask for consult by a gyn who subspecializes in infectious diseases. ...Read more
